Abstract: The Family Scholarship Program is a strategy to unify income transfer programs in Brazil. The assumption is that monetary transfers can help poor families step out of the vicious cycle of poverty when combined with structural policies such as education, health, and job generation. By December 2005, the program had benefited 8.7 million families with a budget of US$3 billion. The program is targeted to reach 11.2 million families by December 2006, which equals approximately the total poor population in Brazil.
