THE Junta de Andalucia has assigned €32m to a programme to prevent youths from leaving school early. The Junta will award 3,000 grants to youths to encourage them to go back to school and finish what they started.
Obtaining the €400 per month for 10 months will depend on their academic performance. If they don’t pass, they will not get the money, although if they re-sit exams, they will be given back the grant when they have passed all subjects.
The candidates must be between 18 and 24, unemployed, have not have registered at a school the previous term and not have obtained their Obligatory Secondary Education or High School diploma, plus, the family income must be less than 75 per cent of the basic income level set by Iprem.
The period to request the grants is open until September 31 as part of the ‘Andalucia Second Opportunity’ programme which aims to give youths a new direction to their lives.
