The Spanish ambassador indicated that one of the great assets in the bilateral relationship between the two countries is the high number of young Dominicans studying in Spain.
The governments of Spain and the Dominican Republic will hold a meeting with universities of both countries in mid-November to discuss cooperation between centers of higher education and the granting of scholarships, the Dominican Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (Mescyt) announced on Tuesday.
The head of the institution, Franklin García Fermín, and the Spanish ambassador to the Caribbean country, Antonio Pérez-Hernández, announced the initiative, highlighting its importance, since Spanish universities are the ones that receive the largest number of Dominican students benefiting from the scholarship program implemented by Mescyt.
Under the slogan “The situation and perspective of Spanish-Dominican inter-university cooperation: The scholarship program of the Ministry of Higher Education and the Iberian nation”, four rectors of Spanish universities and representatives of other academic centers in Spain will participate in the event, which will take place in Santo Domingo.
The Spanish ambassador indicated that one of the great assets in the bilateral relationship between the two countries is “the high number of young Dominicans studying in Spanish territory and Spaniards pursuing degrees on Dominican soil”, which, in addition to the academic experience, is also “a personal experience that brings us closer every day,” he said.
