Benefit: the Progresar Scholarship will be open until the end of the month

Enrollment for Progresar scholarships reopened. This is the second call for 2022 and the possibility of joining the incentive will be valid until August 31. The program is paid for through Anses and is aimed at young people from the age of 16 who are finishing their secondary, tertiary and university studies; It even includes training in trades. The head of the Efficient Resources Program, Nora Ahumada, pointed out that the amount that students receive monthly is $6,400.

“It is not a scholarship that has to do with the academic level, but tries to guarantee that the student remains in the study. It is financial aid that is given to all students who meet the requirements,” said the official.
It is important to note that one of the main requirements is related to the socioeconomic level of the beneficiary’s family environment. They must not have an income greater than three Minimum Vital and Mobile Salaries.
According to what he stated, there are four different lines: Progresar Obligatorio (for the completion of compulsory education), Progresar Superior (for students at tertiary and university levels), Progresar Trabajo (for training in trades) and Progresar Nursing (for students of that course).

He pointed out that beneficiaries who are in high school or tertiary and university studies must renew their registration annually. In the case of those who are trained in trades (which usually last for months), the payment lasts for the duration of the course.

The head of the Efficient Resources Program, Nora Ahumada, pointed out that last year more than 10,000 students were beneficiaries of the Progresar Scholarship. This year’s data has not yet been confirmed.

“When they load the data, from the Ministry of Education we ask the academic institution for the educational requirements of the student enrolled, that is, the school or university has to prove that the student is part of the establishment mentioned in the registration and that it appears as normal,” he explained.

“There are many who could not apply because they did not get to know what the registration mechanics were in the March instance, so a second possibility was opened this month so that they can do so,” he added.
Last year, more than 10 thousand people accessed the scholarships.
