The scholarships from the Avangrid Foundation are intended for students of US nationality. Applicants must be in possession of a bachelor or master's degree from a recognized university on submission of the application. If the applicant is still in the final year of the academic course, the fellowship will be contingent upon whether the applicant secures the university degree at the end of the academic cycle in June/July with the same average grades or greater than the grades at the time of the call for applications.
Applicants must follow the usual procedure for enrolling at the university they wish to attend. Applications submitted by students who have not applied for enrollment at the university will be rejected during the selection process. Applicants may not receive any remuneration or wages or be in receipt of any scholarship, financial aid or other award of a similar nature from institutions and public or private foundations during the period that the scholarship is awarded for. Applications presented by candidates with a grade point average (GPA) during the pursuit of the degree lower than 3.5 for universities in the USA will be rejected. Candidates who have been awarded Fundación IBERDROLA Scholarships in previous announcements are excluded from assessment.
The grants cover full tuition, fees and health insurance, and provide a $25,200 annual stipend for other expenses. This amount will be paid out in $2,100 monthly installments.
