About this Project

This project implements a randomized impact evaluation of an intervention to promote the integration and academic performance of Cape Verdean college students in Portugal. The randomized intervention is a mentoring program which intends to simplify the transition of students from secondary schools in Cape Verde to college in Portugal.

The project will inform public policies at the intersection between the promotion of human capital capacity and the productive integration of immigrants, issues that are becoming more and more relevant particularly in contexts of ageing population.
