campus2016The European Academy of Yuste Foundation offers a programme of 120 grants to cover enrolment fees, accommodation and living expenses for the international courses in the Campus Yuste 2016 programme. The grants are aimed at students who are conducting university studies in official degrees during the year 2015-2016 in any of the countries of the European Union.

These courses, which are part of the international summer courses at the University of Extremadura, will take place during the months of July and October in a unique setting of great symbolic value to the European remembrance as is the Royal Monastery of Yuste, in the town of Cuacos de Yuste (Cáceres). Each course will have 30 seats with grants to be allocated taking into account the applicants’ average grade in the academic record. The deadline for submission of applications is 17 June, and for the course to be held in October it is extended until 23 September. The working language for all courses will be Spanish, except for that of October which will also be taught in English.

Those who are interested can consult the terms of the call for the grants and register for the courses through the website:
