The 11th edition of the scholarship will be awarded to a student from Extremadura, Spain, where FRV’s Carmonita Ministerio solar photovoltaic (PV) project is located. The project is currently under construction and will reach a total capacity of 477 MWp, making it one of the largest PV complexes in Spain.

At the rate of one student per academic year, the scholarship has been awarded to 11 international students to date, covering all training and education costs, including tuition fees, accommodation, academic materials, and living expenses in Spain during the four-year degree program at IE University.

To be eligible for this scholarship, the selected students must demonstrate high academic merits together with an entrepreneurial spirit, and an eagerness for personal improvement and development.

Additionally, it drives positive social change in regions where FRV projects are developed.

Daniel Sagi-Vela, CEO of FRV said:

“We believe that sharing success is a business imperative, and this philosophy has led us to collaborate with the IE Foundation through the Young Talented Leaders scholarship program. This allows us to drive positive social change by supporting education in the communities where we are present, consolidating our commitment to regions such as Extremadura.”

Gonzalo Garland, Executive Vice President of the IE Foundation, said:

“It is a pleasure to have reached the eleventh edition of the FRV scholarships, which cover all education costs of extraordinary students at IE University. As both parties have seen over the years, these scholarships bring a real transformation in the lives of these brilliant young people, while having a positive impact on the areas from which they come. For this reason, at IE Foundation we are very grateful to FRV and very happy to be able to renew this scholarship, once again.”
