The European University and the Organization of American States (OAS), through the Alliances Program for Education and Training (PAEC), have signed a cooperation agreement to support students from the American continent in pursuing their higher studies. Under the agreement, both institutions have launched a scholarship program that includes online, face-to-face and blended master’s degrees in all fields of knowledge, from engineering to health sciences. The program will benefit 150 students who are nationals of and/or reside in OE member countries.
The first call ends on April 7 and offers 50% scholarships for 12-month graduate programs.
The scholarship application responds to the firm commitment of the European University and the Organization of American States with the countries of the American continent. The scholarships are a great opportunity for students from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean to make the most of an innovative academic model based on experiential learning that combines the best of human knowledge and talent with the latest technology.
In this regard, Sergio Calvo, Vice-Chancellor for Institutional Relations and University Life, European University, emphasized, “The signing of this agreement marks another step for our university with its firm commitment to internationalization and bringing the countries of South America. The continent is a global learning experience that has already proven to be a great success experience in Europe.” Doing so in tandem with such a prestigious organization as the Organization of American States is not only a source of pride, but also ensures that we will truly achieve the goal of promoting talent in the region.”
The Organization of American States, through the Alliance Program (PAEC), seeks to work with associations and universities interested in promoting the internationalization of higher education and to receive and support international students in their efforts to develop their training. “The pandemic has shown the importance of working with partners who offer programs with new and much needed skills. We are looking for institutions that offer greater flexibility in their programmes, scholarships and financial assistance, which is why we are very pleased that Universidad Europea has joined this important initiative, becoming a strategic ally of our organization”, said Yadira Soto, Head of Scholarships Department of the Organization of American States.
The first call opened on March 11 and is offering scholarships for 12-month postgraduate programs. Applications can be submitted until 7 April and selected applications will be published in the third week of April. The partial scholarship program will cover 50% of the value of studies.
The scholarship evaluation process will take into account the applicants’ academic and professional merit, as well as geographic location and gender parity to allocate scholarships to the most outstanding students in the region.
