Buenos Aires, 16 April 2012.- Santander Río Universities launched the second call of the Latin America Grants Programme (2012-2013). In this second year, the number of grants awarded will be doubled, amounting to 120 grants for undergraduates and 20 grants for young teachers and researchers.
 
In Spain, in the 2011 Call, Santander Río Universities had a quota of 65 grants for students and 10 grants for young teachers and researchers, which were all awarded to 16 Argentinean universities. Grant holders selected by the universities did their mobility exchange in educational institutions of: Spain, Brazil, Portugal and Mexico.
 
In 2012, another 15 Argentinean universities are included in the Programme, making a total of 31 beneficiary universities in our country. The universities have a deadline of up to December 2012 to inform the proposed grant holders. Those selected in this call can make use of the grant until the first semester of 2013.
 
The Latin America Grants Programme is a five year project, lasting from 2011- 2015, with the object of reinforcing mobility and exchange of students and researchers between Latin American universities, a step which needs to be taken in order to make progress in building a socially responsible Latin American knowledge space.
 
Santander Universities launched this mobility grants programme in 2011, awarding 18,000 grants and so helping 15,000 students and 3,000 researchers in Latin America during the duration of the programme.
 
The programme is directed, on the one hand, towards undergraduate students, who receive an allowance of 3,000 euros (or the equivalent in local currency) and, on the other hand, to teachers and researchers, who are awarded 5,000 euros (or the equivalent in local currency). Each one of the universities taking part in the programme is responsible for selecting the candidates. People interested will be able to consult the scope of the programme in their respective universities.
 
The Latin America Grants Programme for Undergraduate Students aims to help students to do their studies in an academic semester in a Latin American university of another country. The general structure of the programme has been designed with the aim of guaranteeing the recognition of studies, reciprocity in the exchange and the progressive scope to Latin American countries overall. Students who are
matriculated at a Latin American university and who have earned 120 credits or finished 2 courses will be able to take part. The matriculation and the grades achieved will be recognised.
 
The purpose of the Latin America Grants Programme for Young Teachers and Researchers is to help to complete the training and the scientific and technical specialisation of its beneficiaries, help to adapt their level of knowledge, learn new techniques and methods, establish or consolidate academic bonds between research teams and Latin American institutions, and also allow additional and specific information necessary for the studies or research being undertaken to be gathered. Teachers and researchers who are younger than 35, with an annual contract with the university, who have a notable professional track record and with a work plan to be developed in the university they will travel to, shall be entitled to take part.
 
In the first cycle, 1000 grants were awarded for undergraduate students, shared out amongst universities from 10 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Spain, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico and Uruguay. The number will be increased by a further 1,000 grants in successive annual calls.
 
In turn, 200 grants were awarded in 2011 for the community of Young Teachers and Researchers belonging to universities of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Portugal, Puerto Rico and Uruguay. This number will be increased by a further 200 grants in successive annual calls, reaching a total of 1000 by 2015.
