SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Sep 8 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife has already opened the deadline for submitting applications for scholarships and study aids corresponding to the academic year 2021-2022, whose completion period will be specific for each of the scholarship modalities, as has been published in the Bulletin Official of the Province (BOP).
The total amount that is allocated to the calls for scholarships and study aid is 8,177,619.16 euros, which may be increased depending on budget availability during the year 2022.
Specifically, the deadline for requesting general scholarships for university studies, artistic studies, vocational training studies and those for students with special educational needs is in force.
The Minister of Education and Youth, Concepción Rivero, details in a note that “the maximum amounts range from 1,200 euros for students with special educational needs to 6,500 euros for university students, artistic studies and Vocational Training”, and adds that “the Cabildo, with these scholarships, has the main objective of preventing young people from abandoning their studies due to lack of economic resources in their families.”
It also comments that the budget for this purpose may be increased in the budget for 2022, “if necessary.”
In this course, as a novelty, the processing of scholarships for university studies is simplified and is carried out exclusively by telematic means, through the electronic headquarters of the Cabildo de Tenerife.
The remaining lines can be requested both electronically and on paper by entry registration.
The insular director of Education and Youth, Isabel Bello, points out that the corporation “will try to help as many families as possible and make payments as quickly as possible, so that, in the shortest time, they will have the subsidy” .
