Lisbon, 19 October 2020. PRESS RELEASE
Santander Universities launches its second Santander Global Scholarships programme, to foster mobility for university students during the pandemic. Santander is offering 250 scholarships for degree and master's students who wish to spend some time at an overseas university and who are enrolled at one of the higher education institutions belonging to Banco Santander's programme. Applications can be submitted until 30 November.
These higher education institutions include Universidad de Coimbra, Universidad de Porto, Universidad de Madeira, Instituto Politécnico de Setúbal, Universidad de Évora, the Military Academy, Coimbra's Escuela Superior de Enfermería, the Instituto Politécnico Castelo Branco and ISEL.
The Santander Global Scholarships seek to provide students with limited resources with between €500 and €1,000 in aid to help them to study abroad.
The objective is to encourage students to have an international, multicultural experience in another part of the world and another language, enriching their academic CVs and preparing them for careers that will inevitably be more closely connected to people all over the world.
To be eligible, students must: be enrolled at one of the higher education institution with an agreement with the bank; be studying on an undergraduate or postgraduate course; have successfully completed the previous academic year; and hold Portuguese nationality.
