The University of Murcia through Campus Mare Nostrum renews its collaboration with Women for Africa Foundation for the academic year 2021-2226 Mar 2021
For the 2021-22 academic year, Campus Mare Nostrum will finance the enrollment fees of one African female student for the Master’s degree “Tecnologías Educativas: e-Learning y Gestión del Conocimiento”. As a novelty, it will include the financing of a 3-month research stay in our University and which will be related to the Master’s degree activities.
Nowadays, the student from Benin, Sètongnon Melania Prisca Legba, who has a degree in 1Filologia Española, is following the Master’s degree very satisfactorily. As normal, they are face-to-face grants, but as a result of the travelling restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the studies which are being offered will be online for this academic year and for the 2021-2022 academic year too.
From 2013 to last year, 153 African students from 34 countries were benefited from the Learn Africa Programme of Women for Africa Foundation with studies from different subjects and levels in 40 Spanish universities, 1 Portuguese and 2 educational centres in Morocco.
More than 32 Spanish grants in the 2020-2021 academic year were offered among the different Spanish universities (UAX, UGR, UPM, UVigo, UsC, UCLM, UBU, UNED, …) which participated in the Programme, covering research studies, postgraduate studies, own degrees and 2Lengua Española studies.
The grant awarded by the University of Murcia for the current academic year has a global funding of 4.000€ to cover the enrollment fees and possible administrative costs for the Master’s degree “Tecnología Educativa: e-learning y Gestión del Conocimiento”. The next academic year will also comprise the costs of a 3-month stay.
The University of Murcia is pleased to be part of this important programme for Africa women through Campus Mare Nostrum.
