YOUNGSTERS from Benijofar have benefited from scholarships to help them with living costs at Alicante University.
The Aid Plan includes accommodation, meals and a financial contribution towards registration costs.
Called the Provincial Home Residential Scholarship Programme, it is financed by the provincial council. The deputy for the area, Juan Francisco Perez, welcomed the university students who have benefited from these grants.
Perez said: “These grants are part of the social welfare work developed by the provincial institution within the plan of promotion, encouragement and reuse of the facilities of the residential home and are focused primarily on students who demonstrate good academic performance, among other requirements.
The aid is intended for those students who are going to study or are already studying at the University of Alicante or Miguel Hernandez de Elche and who, either because of their remoteness or their social and family situation, have difficulty getting to the facilities.
Like other years, the aspects that have been taken into account when evaluating the applications are the academic record, the socio-familiar situation and the distance from home.
