155 students from the University of Oviedo will train at EDP this academic year


Education and Research


155 students from the University of Oviedo will complete their training at EDP during the next academic year. The EDP Foundation is launching the call for its scholarship programme, which is aimed at students with more than 30 specialities. The programme, which has been awarded one million euros, is the most prominent at the University of Oviedo.

Students interested in taking part in the programme can apply from September 14 to 24 via the internships application at the University of Oviedo (https://sies.uniovi.es/serviciosacademicos). Qualifications - 25 degrees and 8 Master’s degrees - include electrical engineering, commerce and marketing, software engineering, chemistry, economics and law.

The programme, which this year celebrates its 35th anniversary, has been renamed the Martín González del Valle Scholarships, after the man who presided over the energy company from 1987 to 1999 and was honorary chairman of the EDP Foundation until his death in November 2015.

Martín González del Valle Scholarships, which are the result of an agreement with the University of Oviedo, are remunerated and have a duration of six months. The training period will start in mid-October, with the incorporation of each student at the work centre allocated. Internships will be carried out in all areas of the company, under the supervision of tutors, who will train and help students.

In addition to the agreement with the University of Oviedo, the EDP Foundation has agreements with other Spanish universities and schools to encourage the training of more students in the different work facilities and centres that the company has in other communities. Thus, this year more than 30 students will join work centres in Madrid, Cantabria, the Basque Country, Andalusia, Murcia, Galicia, Aragon, Navarre and Valencia.
