Find out how to be part of a new edition of Connectivity Grant

The ability to provide equal opportunities for all young people is one of the primary goals of the San Juan government, ensuring inclusion and progress in every county.

In this sense, the “Scholarships Connect” program emerged from the Ministry of Human Development and Social Promotion, through the Youth Directorate, which aims to ensure free access to and use of the Internet for young people to continue their studies. .

This is a public initiative that will cover 3,000 young people from 19 departments and consists of 3 GB of mobile data that will be added to the cell phone of each beneficiary. This amount represents more than 6 hours of standard video conferencing in apps like Zoom or Skype. Additionally, it will allow sending/receiving more than 4000 PDF documents and using instant messaging apps like WhatsApp.

In this way, each interested party must enter the official website of the Directorate, register and complete the form. It is important to note that, for this, you must meet the requirements established by the Youth Directorate, giving priority to those students who are candidates from departments and remote areas where there is a lower degree of contact.

It is important to note that the registration process will remain open to the interested public until March 25. In addition, those who wish to join it must meet the following requirements:

  • 16 to 30 years old
  • Not receiving a Progresar scholarship or transportation grant
  • Have less than 3 minimum vital and moving wages in the family group
  • Not being able to access WiFi at home

In this regard, the Minister of Human Development and Social Promotion, Fabian Aballai, added, “These are tools that the government provides today to all young people that translate into access to education. Every young person is the future of our province and that is why we as a state will accompany public policies for the benefit of young people.”
