These scholarships contribute to improving access to higher education in Chile, placing an emphasis on helping to allow young people to study and return to their communities, contributing to community development.

The programme provides monthly grants of CLP 85,000 for students in rural areas and CLP 75,000 for students in urban areas, renewable for up to three semesters.

Applicants must be enrolled in the first year of a full time degree programme at one of the universities prioritised for the pilot phase (see list below), and must complete the following steps:

  • Attach the documentation specified in the form.
  • Send the application by email to becas.unesco(at)unesco.org
