Santander Scholarships -A Breath of Fresh Air for Ghanaian Students and Many More Nationalities

Winning a scholarship is, indeed, a breath of fresh air because it allows students to focus solely on their studying plan rather than creating different plans for searching financial alternatives which are time consuming. It is the example of Santander Scholarships supported by the global network called Santander Universities, where up to 6 scholarships worth £5,000 are offered to 6 outstanding students whose home countries are the following: https://www.dur.ac.uk/postgraduate/finance/scholarships/santander/. As it can be seen, one of the criteria based on which the scholarships are awarded is the geographical one.

A short introduction to Santander Universities Division

Chairman of Santander, Emilio Botin in 1996 decided that the bank should meet the requirements of the communities in which it operates. Lead by the conviction that the university is a vital cornerstone of any community and an efficient mechanism that supports people and businesses to prosper, Santander Universities began its activity in Spain. The division began to grow and rapidly expanded into more than 20 countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Portugal and the UK. So far, Santander Universities has donated more than €1.5 billion in the shape of mobility grants, scholarships, support for entrepreneurship, non-academic awards, and special projects.
