23/02/2021. The first seven African scholarship holders of the Learn Africa Canarias programme, promoted by the Women for Africa Foundation and the Ministry of Economy, Knowledge and Employment of the Government of the Canary Islands, start their course today.
Those selected to follow the online course “University expert in cultural management and coordination of popular universities”, taught by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, come from Senegal (4), Morocco (2) and Ivory Coast (1).
This is a ULPGC-specific degree that will provide them with advanced, interdisciplinary and specialised training as future managers of the cultural areas of these institutions in a professional manner.
Learn Africa Canarias was born out of a shared commitment with the Government of the Canary Islands to promote the presence of African women in the field of education, to encourage the transfer of knowledge and to strengthen the capacities of African students.
Throughout this year 2021, other calls for applications will be opened with new and varied scholarships. Master’s degree courses, own degrees, language courses and specialised courses designed by the Universities of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and La Laguna, and their foundations, Fundación Canaria Universitaria de la Universidad de Las Palmas and Fundación Canaria General de la Universidad de La Laguna, will offer access to a wide range of subjects.
We invite those interested to follow our website and social networks from where we will disseminate the new opportunities and congratulate those who join today: Coumba Faye, Marie Thiam, Claire Martine Timoussé Mbaye and Bernadette Ndiogoye from Senegal, Fatima Makhoukh and Zohra Maaras from Morocco, and Peasseu Lililane Tomekpa from Ivory Coast.
