The University of the Basque Country and the Autonomous University of Madrid will be the destinations of the grantees from Salamanca for their PhDs.
The University of Salamanca is currently one of the academic institutions that has the most grantees from the La Caixa Foundation. This morning new grants were awarded to students for doing their PhD in the coming years. There will be two USAL students who will study outside of Salamanca and one who will come here to do his PhD.
These prestigious La Caixa Foundation grants are a great opportunity for students to continue their research careers, not only with financial support, but also with the assurance that someone believed in them. Thanks to these scholarships, many young people start their future as scientists, with the challenges implied by 21st century science. The La Caixa Foundation knows very well that the training that these young people receive today, will result in future scientific progress and social welfare.
he students are Pablo Cabrera Álvarez, from the Complutense University of Madrid, who will do his PhD in Social Sciences at the University of Salamanca; Dana Scarinci Zabaleta, a USAL student who will do a PhD in Linguistics at the University of the Basque Country; and Javier Martín García from the USAL who will do his PhD in Theoretical Physics at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of the Autonomous University of Madrid. As for Pablo Cabrera Álvarez, he will be supervised by Professor Modesto Escobar, Professor of Sociology.
Congratulations to these extraordinary students.
