RMF: English Scholarship for young learners at the British Council
The Ramon Molinas Foundation and the British Council, in collaboration with the Department of Education of the government of Catalonia, are offering 25 scholarships to students aged between 14 and 18 to foster the learning of English. Under the name RMF: English Scholarship for young learners at the British Council, the programme promotes learning through English and seeks to promote the social integration of those young people who have an excellent academic level, great aptitude and who come from difficult socioeconomic backgrounds. The Department of Education of the government of Catalonia will be responsible for identifying and selecting the 25 students who will participate in the project.
The students who participate in the programme will enjoy the advantages that learning and perfecting English entails. The RMF: English scholarship for young learners at the British Council will provide them with the tools needed to communicate and interact, affording them the opportunity to become more internationalised. Furthermore, the agreement between the RMF, the British Council and the Department of Education of the government of Catalonia will grant them the opportunity to transform the environment in which they are growing up through interaction with their new companions from the centre that the institution has in the Bonanova neighbourhood of Barcelona. In addition, if the students make the most of the scholarship, which will last until the end of June, it will be extended with the aim of providing continued high level training to perfect their English.
The British Council was founded in the United Kingdom in 1934 with the aim of promoting knowledge of the English language to foster cultural, technological and scientific cooperation worldwide. Awarded the Princess of Asturias Award for notable achievements in communication and humanities in 2005, it provides English courses of all levels so that students can progress from a basic level until reaching the command required to opt for the Proficiency certificate granted by Cambridge English. The students availing of the programme will learn how to communicate in English in real-life situations, with native teachers and individual support.
