In this brief text we propose to discuss a few aspects of the research that we are performing in the History Department at Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos, Unisinos (Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil), which aims to discuss the work done by the Rockefeller Foundation to train public health professionals in the first decades of the 20th century and their relationship with the development of institutions and public health policies in Brazil. This was done mainly by granting fellowships through which the North American institution sought to disseminate ideas and models. By performing a prosopographical study whose subjects are the 88 Brazilian fellows of the International Health Division (IHD) belonging to the Rockefeller Foundation, between 1917 and 1951, it will be possible to discuss, among other aspects, the process by which the Foundation selects the people who are to receive the fellowships and their profile, as well as their professional career, taking into account the objectives of the fellowships mentioned above.
