Since 2019, it has been part of the sustainability programs with which Providencia strengthens its commitment to education and progress in the region, thus improving access to higher education.
This program grants three university scholarships to those students from the schools of El Cerrito, rural area of Guacarí and the town of Amaime (Palmira), who have stood out for their good performance and for having obtained the best scores in the Saber 11 test. The beneficiaries can choose the degree they wish to study at the university of their choice in Valle del Cauca.
The students who win the Providencia Educa Scholarship will receive 100% of the tuition for the degree they wish to study at the university of their choice in Valle del Cauca. In addition, they receive financial support for their clothing and a latest generation laptop computer to support their academic activities.
Currently, six scholarships have been granted.
