  • WHAT WE DO

    Since 1982, every year ”la Caixa” Foundation has held a call for fellowship applications aimed at students wishing to further their training by carrying out postgraduate studies.

    We work hard to support young university talent because we firmly believe that scientific advances, research, mobility and professional qualifications are key to the development of people and society as a whole.

    The ”la Caixa” fellowship programme is the most important scheme promoted by a private institution in Spain, both in terms of the number of fellowships granted, the thoroughness of its selection process and the share of the funding given for each scholarship, as well as the variety of disciplines subsidised.

    We also stand out for the special attention we pay to fellowship holders before, during and after their period of study, offering them additional services and support to ensure their experience is as enriching as possible.

  • HOW WE HELP

    This year, 230 fellowships are being awarded to study or carry out a research project at universities or research centres in Spain, Portugal and the rest of Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific area.
