Institutional support in times of pandemic

The URACCAN Scholarship Commission in the New Guinea precinct held a working session to evaluate applications submitted by the bimonthly study of the second half of the current year.

According to the deputy chancellor of the compound, PhD. Eugenio López Mairena, "in this session the previous agreements will be reviewed, but we will also review the process for applying for scholarships for students of bimonthly meetings that will soon be on the premises, within the scholarships to several of these young people is the food, the internal scholarship and the tariff grant".

In this regard, Teacher Consuelo Blandón, academic secretary of the campus and chair of the committee, said that "The Scholarship Commission is responsible for ensuring that it delivers tariff and food grants, in addition internally, to the low-income student, by remoteness, among others".

Blandón further recalled that "from the philosophy of the university this benefit is important and necessary for educational continuity, more in pandemic time".

Student leadership involvement in the Scholarship Commission

"It is very important for us as a student leadership to be a part of this commission, as this is helping to make decisions and selection for low-income students and to be able to distribute scholarships to any university community," said Katherine Huete, the campus' student president.

Intercultural Community College Scholarship Program

URACCAN, through its scholarship program, contributes to the access, permanence and professionalization of the human talent of the Caribbean Coast, as reaffirmed in its Vision and Mission, thus strengthening the individual and collective identity of indigenous, mixed and Afro-descendant peoples.

That is why in each of the campuses and university extensions of this study house there is a Scholarship Commission. In the case of the venues, it consists of: Academic Secretariat, which chairs the committee; responsible for Student Welfare, who serves as secretary; the presidency of the Student Movement; vice-chancellor.

It consists of providing food, accommodation, tariff and other benefits, such as: medical care, cleaning equipment that will be delivered at the beginning of each academic cycle to ensure the cleanliness of intercultural university residences.

Within the Scholarship Regulations of this study house it is proposed that assistance will be provided for passage to students from the farthest communities, according to the possibilities of the institution and the annual policies approved by the University Council.
