FENATEP considers that the Institute for the Training and Use of Human Resources (IFARHU) made a mistake by giving the scholarships they gave during 2020 and 2021 to outstanding students because the foundations were not solid, they argue that it had to be taken into account account a review of grades from past years.

Previously, the director of IFARHU, Bernardo Meneses, declared that, in 2019, a total of 35,000 students benefited from competition scholarships, distinguished positions, sports and culture; by 2020, the total was 70,000.
