Haiti – Spain : More than 20 scholarships awarded to Haitian students
Haiti is positioned among the privileged partners of the Kingdom of Spain in terms of cooperation. No less than ten memoranda of understanding for academic collaboration have been negotiated with several Universities of the Iberian Peninsula, five of which have already been initialed, so that Haiti can make the most of the various programs offered by Spanish institutions.
Ambassador Louis Marie Saintil welcomed the impact of the efforts to strengthen academic and scientific cooperation between Haiti and Spain
With the aim of developing strong and lasting international partnerships, several Spanish universities and institutions have decided to grant scholarships to more than twenty Haitian students in the various training programs, in particular the ERASMUS + KA 107 Program, in the objective of contributing to the strengthening of Haitian human capital.
Among others :
Rey Juan Carlos University (URJC) (x9);
San Antonio de Murcla Catholic University (UCAM) (x6);
Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) (x5),
The University of Seville (US) (x1);
The University of Granada (x2);
Diplomatic School of Madrid and the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID)
The Spanish institutions have not only prioritized programs in the areas of water and sanitation, public health, education, engineering, restoration of cultural heritage, etc., but have also shown their willingness to support the creation of a doctoral school in Haiti, making it possible to increase the number of scientific researchers in the country.
Other Spanish universities are also planning to collaborate with higher education institutions in Haiti in areas of common interest.
“The signing, on Wednesday April 21, of the memorandum of understanding for collaboration between the Conference of Rectors, Presidents and Directors of Haitian Universities and Higher Education Institutions (CORPUHA) and the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (CRUE) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-33534-haiti-cooperation-signature-of-a-mou-between-haitian-and-spanish-universities.html enhances the brilliance of this initiative which, without a doubt, will be beneficial for our Haitian students and teachers,” underlined Ambassador Louis Marie Saintil
