UC3M awards the 2019 Alumni scholarships


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) has awarded 12 new Alumni Scholarships to students with good academic records and limited financial resources who began their undergraduate studies at the University this year.

Each scholarship is worth 3,000 euro per course year (12,000 euro throughout the degree course) and requires the student to maintain a good record. Every year since 2012 a total of 12 scholarships have been available and to date 95 students have been awarded these grants, which facilitate their move to and settling in the Madrid area in order to study at UC3M. Students agree to repay 50 percent of the amount between five and 15 years after graduation, so that the amounts reimbursed allow for funding of new scholarships.

The presentation ceremony for these scholarships took place yesterday – the 23rd of October - at the Getafe campus, and was attended by the President, Juan Romo, and the Vice-President for Students, Social Responsibility and Equality of the University, María Luisa González-Cuellar. At the ceremony, Rafael Cascales, graduate in Business Management and Economics and director/founder of CASICO, spoke on behalf of the Alumni donor group, as did the chairperson of the Spanish Association of Foreign Trade Professionals (ACOCEX in the Spanish acronym). Alberto González Felipe, a winner of an Alumni Scholarship in 2014, who currently combines his double degree studies in Law and Economics with his work as a "product specialist" in the Department of Business Development at Hertz, also participated.

The Alumni Scholarships take their name from the former students of UC3M who, with their contributions, help make it so that other young people have the opportunity to study at the same university as them. Teachers, students and staff from the university community also contribute to the financing of these scholarships; individuals such as writers Rosa Montero and Lorenzo Silva or the chairperson of Solaria, Enrique Díaz-Tejeiro; and entities such as Academic Partnerships, Acciona, ACM, Airbus Group, Altamira, Axa, Baker & McKenzie, Casico, CESyA, Deloitte, Enagás, Fundación DAMM, Fundación Ebro, Fundación ONCE, Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica Hospital Gregorio Marañón, Fundación Ramón Areces, Fundación Urrutia Elejalde, Inditex, Indra, Mercedes Benz, Olmata, Otis, Philips, PWC, Volkswagen Group España and Vass.

Donations of various kinds can be made throughout the year through the UC3M Alumni website and are used entirely to finance the scholarships.
