UC3M awards the 2023 Alumni scholarships


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) has awarded 12 new Alumni Scholarships to low-income students with good academic records who have started their undergraduate studies at the University. Each scholarship holder receives 3,600 euros per academic year (14,400 euros for undergraduate studies and 21,600 for double degree studies) and those who receive it commit to maintaining a good record and returning part of the aid they received to provide new scholarships, when their personal and professional situation allows it.

The scholarships for the 2023/2024 academic year were awarded during a ceremony held in the Aula Magna on the Getafe Campus on Tuesday, 17th October, which was attended by more than a hundred participants, including former students, alumni scholarship holders and representatives from companies and institutions. UC3M Rector Ángel Arias chaired the event together with the President of the UC3M Social Council, Francisco Marhuenda; the Vice-Rector for Students, Pilar Otero; the Vice-Rector for Institutional Relations, Culture and Equality, Eva Blázquez; and the Managing Director of the Carlos III University Foundation, Ignacio Sesma. The event was also attended by Gema Quintero, Deputy Vice-Rector for Student Associations and Halls of Residence; Francisco Cifuentes, Development Account Director at INECO; and Carmen Vaquero, alumni scholarship holder from the 2020/2021 academic year.

In this edition, the new scholarships were awarded by Ignacio Rodríguez-Solano, director of the Renault Foundation in Spain; Juan Manuel García, CIO and CDO of Repsol; Ramón Femenía on behalf of Enrique Díaz-Tejeiro; José Daniel García Sánchez, director of the "using std::cpp 2023" Congress; and Ana López Ortega, director of the UC3M Alumni Office, on behalf of the Ramón Areces Foundation and Philips. 

Since its launch in 2012, 146 students have been awarded UC3M Alumni scholarships, representing a commitment of more than 2 million euros. Of these, 80 have already graduated. This support makes it easier for them to move and settle into the Community of Madrid. 

The scholarships are named after former UC3M students, who contribute so that other young people have the opportunity to study at the same university. During the 12 years of the programme, lecturers, students and staff from the university community have contributed to the funding. In addition, contributions have been made by the writers Rosa Montero and Lorenzo Silva; the president of Solaria, Enrique Díaz-Tejeiro; the former president of UC3M’s Social Council, Matías Rodríguez Inciarte; and Alberto Grau, from the company Bunzl. More than 45 entities have also collaborated, such as Academic Partnerships, Acciona, ACM, Airbus Group, Alea Media, Altamira, Axa, Baker & Mckenzie, Casico, CESyA, Deloitte, Enagás, DAMM Foundation, Ebro Foundation, ONCE Foundation, Gregorio Marañón Hospital Foundation for Biomedical Research, Profesor Uría Foundation, Ramón Areces Foundation, Renault Foundation, Urrutia Elejalde Foundation, VASS Foundation, Inditex, Indra, Ineco, Interactiva Facility (Ibergest Group), Mercedes Benz, Olmata, Otis, Philips, PWC, Repsol, SMS Quality and Volkswagen Group Spain.

Donations, in various forms, can be made throughout the year on the UC3M Alumni donation website and go entirely towards funding the scholarships.
