The Barrancabermeja Municipal Office announced this week that many young people in the city are awaiting the opening of the call for the scholarship program.
The Minister of Local Education, Omar Prada, has reported that more than 1,000 scholarships are being offered for the next semester.
“We will be until December 20 with the opening of our virtual headquarters and enabling them to progress. There are more than 150 programs available,” the official commented.
In addition, he said, students studying from the 10th grade can pursue technical careers, without the need for a bachelor’s degree.
“Year 11 students who still do not have the title in their hands, but wish to apply for the life-changing scholarship program, for professional level, should wait for this document,” Prada said.
