The scholarships of “la Caixa” are awarded in competitive competition. Applications must pass a first evaluation phase through the peer review system, and all those that receive the best grades are called for a personal interview. In the selection process, university professors with international experience participate in this type of evaluation process. The selection criteria take into account, among others, aspects linked to the excellence of the projects. Both the number of applications received and the rigor and level of requirement of the selection processes ensure that the candidates finally selected accredit outstanding levels of excellence.

Speaking at the event Felipe encouraged the students saying, “The majority of scholars will end up going back to Spain at the end of your studies or, in some cases, a few years later. It is natural and legitimate for each person to seek and try to find their way wherever life offers the best options.” The King stressed that “do your best also to make your successes redirect in your fellow citizens. The progress of our country needs you; we need you to be involved in it, so that with your knowledge, skills and experience you contribute to our progress and improvement. I am sure that each of you – when possible – will know how to make this a reality. “

For the youth oriented activity, Queen Letizia chose a very modest yet chic style with elegance. Letizia brought back the navy floral Hugo Boss BOSS ‘Viplisa’ pleated skirt first worn at a luncheon for the visiting President of Palestine last November.
