UTEC (The University of Engineering and Technology), with Fundación MAPFRE's support, continues working to offer opportunities to young Peruvians in the fields of science and technology in Lima, Peru.
The scholarship program benefits 9 students who have demonstrated good academic performance but have financial difficulties. They receive financial support in order to go to university, which will enable them to have an impact on their surroundings and their reality through science and technology.
The program conducts various workshops every two weeks in order to keep in constant contact with the beneficiary students and to keep abreast of any possible problems or concerns they may have throughout the academic year.
With this project, the beneficiaries stay motivated on their studies and on performing well in order to complete their university degrees. This means that financial concerns will not hinder them from getting a good education.
