A STUDENT from Sevilla has been accepted on one of Europe’s most competitive science scholarship programmes.
Maria Remedios Dominguez has won a place at the University of Cambridge for the summer, as part of the Amgen Scholarship programme.
A farmer’s daughter originally from Extremadura – where agriculture is a vital part of the economy – Maria’s interest in plants and farming was sparked from an early age.
She is currently in her third year at the University Pablo de Olavide in Sevilla, completing a degree in biotechnology.
The Amgen programme offers students the opportunity to work in world-class labs across Europe and receives thousands of applications every year.
