With the “Vamos Pa” Lante 2021″ campaign, 200 scholarships will be awarded in Cartagena | Global

More than 200 rescue scholarships will be awarded progressively to Bolivar Technological University students in the fifth semester and beyond. This is thanks to the solidarity of the donors for the “Vamos pa l’Ante 2021” campaign, whose main objective on this occasion was to reduce student abandonment for economic reasons linked to the pandemic.

For the first semester of 2022, 40 young people from various academic programs were selected as scholarship recipients, after they had applied for a call made by the university.

This was announced by UTB’s Director of Development, Alicia Pozzi, after making an overall balance of the campaign’s results, which were very positive and highly influential in promoting the Youth Lives Project.
