Online meeting with DIPLOCAT scholarship recipients

Laura Foraster wishes good luck and success to those who will study international and Euro-Mediterranean studies abroad

Coinciding with the beginning of the academic year, DIPLOCAT has organized an online meeting with the four male and four female students who this year have obtained a scholarship to conduct international and Euro-Mediterranean postgraduate studies abroad. Laura Foraster i Lloret, Secretary General of DIPLOCAT, has taken the opportunity to congratulate them and wish them luck and success.

This year, DIPLOCAT has awarded 6 scholarships to study international studies at foreign universities (London School of Economics and Political Science; Sciences Po in Paris; University of Amsterdam; University of Leiden; and University of London) and 2 scholarships to study the Master in European Interdisciplinary Studies at the Natolin campus of the College of Europe in Warsaw (Poland). Each scholarship amounts 26,000 euros.

Some of the students who have already started classes have explained that they are mostly done in the classroom and they don't have to wear a mask, as a sign of a certain return to normality. The Secretariat of the DIPLOCAT Scholarship programme has also used the opportunity to discuss some practical issues with the students.

The DIPLOCAT Scholarship programme for postgraduate studies was created in 1982 with the goal of training professionals specialising in public diplomacy, international relations, Euro-Mediterranean policy and European integration, who in the future will help position Catalonia in the world.
