31 scholarship grants handed out to healthcare professionals
Over the 2020-21 academic year, Assistència Sanitària’s scholarship programme has granted aid valued at over 30,000 euros to master and post-graduate students.
Assistència Sanitària and its scholarship programme for healthcare professionals have renewed, for the thirteenth year running, the commitment to training in the health field. In the 2020-21 academic year, adapted to the current healthcare situation, it has exceeded the maximum amounts given in previous years and it received 535 applications, which, after the selection process, have been turned into 30,165 euros of aid for 31 master or post-graduate students in the health sector.
As was emphasised during the diploma-awarding ceremony, Mr. Ignacio Orce, chairman of Assistència Sanitària, “the initiative was born from the wish to promote the up-dating of knowledge by healthcare professionals as a contribution to the improvement of the Catalan healthcare system, but also as a special acknowledgement to the nursing profession, an essential job for good medical care. From all the points of view, the summary of these thirteen editions is really positive: 3,480 applications have been received; 399 scholarships have been handed out and around 380,000 euros have been awarded.”
