Smart students in Spain rewarded with study grants

The head of Andalucia’s Junta has made a pledge to create university grants for those with good grades.

Susana Diaz wants to give allowances to students who do well in their studies at public institutions in Spain to remove barriers to higher education for those from poorer backgrounds.

Allocated according to the financial status of the student’s family, the grants would be used to help pay for accommodation and transport.

The promise is the first to be made by Diaz in her campaign to become general secretary of the left-wing PSOE.

She said that her policy would be part of her larger effort, should she ever become prime minister, to reform the state university system and reward ‘students who strive to do well.’
