Each year the vice-rector Department for International Relations provides different grants for international cooperation practices in developing countries (not just Latin America but also Africa, Southeast Asian countries ...).
The aim of this program is to support the cooperation and development of all aspects related to the universities in these countries, establishing agreements and partnerships that allow the realization of these practices.
The minimum duration of these internships shall be one month, and they may not start later than 30 November and must end before the end of the year.
These grants provide a lump sum of about 750 € for travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses.
It is important to take into account that you may not receive your requested destination, so you should be prepared for obtaining another destination different to the initially chosen.
These cooperation grants also provide financial support to students from those less developed countries to enable them to come here. It is very appreciated to offer accommodation to those students.
You must also write a letter explaining the reasons for the implementation of these practices as well as an interview. The motivation for cooperating with these less privileged people is highly appreciated.
