The UC3M awards Alumni 2020 grants


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

The UC3M Alumni Grants started in 2012 and since then 107 students have been awarded these grants over 9 years, also facilitating the relocation of these students and helping them settle into the Community of Madrid in order to study at the UC3M.

Each grant recipient receives 3,000 Euros per semester (12,000 Euros throughout the entire degree) and requires students to maintain a good academic record. Students who receive these grants have to respond to this opportunity by achieving academic results and graduating in the top third of their class. In the future, they will join this chain of solidarity by returning part of the aid they received in order to provide new grants, once their professional and economic situation allows it.

The institutional ceremony in which these grants are awarded took place on the 22nd October at the Getafe Campus. President of the UC3M, Juan Romo, the Vice-President for Institutional Relations and Sustainable Development, María Luisa González-Cuellar, and the Managing Director of the Universidad Carlos III Foundation, Ignacio Sesma, attended the event. María Gómez Rodríguez, a law graduate and legal director at Netflix, participated in the event on behalf of the Alumni group of donors. Carlos González Pérez, who was awarded an Alumni Grant in 2016 and who currently combines his Dual Degree studies in International Studies and Economics with his work as a research analyst at Compass Lexecon, also took part in the event.

Alumni Grants are named after former UC3M students who contribute to other young people having the opportunity to study at the same university. Teachers, students and staff from the university community also make donations to these grants; individualssuch as writers Rosa Montero and Lorenzo Silva and Solaria President Enrique Diaz-Tejeiro; and organisations, such as Academic Partnerships, Acciona, ACM, Airbus Group, Alea Media, Altamira, Axa, Baker & McKenzie, Casico, CESyA, Deloitte, Enagás, the DAMM Foundation, the Ebro Foundation, the ONCE Foundation, the Gregorio Marañón Hospital Biomedical Research Foundation, the Ramón Areces Foundation, the Urrutia Elejalde Foundation, Inditex, Indra, Ineco, Interactiva Facility (Ibergest Group), Olmata, Otis, Philips, PWC, Volkswagen Group Spain and Vass.

Donations can be made throughout the year in different forms via the Alumni UC3M website and are intended to be used solely to fund these grants.
