The Architectural and Construction Scholarships Program (ACSP) is a scholarship program for students pursuing the Master's Degree in Environmental Management and Building Design (MDGAE: Spanish acronym). The following companies participate in the ACSP program:
The aspiration of the ACSP is to allow companies committed to the development of more sustainable building practices to participate in the training of professionals who specialize in the application of measures that reduce the impact of construction on the environment.
This scholarship program strengthens one of the goals of the MDGAE: the link between the master's degree and the business world, encouraging an association among training, research, businesses and innovation. This link implies that the master's degree is conceived as a training program that works in harmony with the demands of the real world of the profession and means that MDGAE graduates can carry out their jobs more effectively within the companies where they work.
ACSP scholarships offset 50% of the total registration fee for the master's degree program and are intended for Spanish students.
Characteristics of the financial aid
The scholarships are intended to offset 50% of the total registration fee for the MDGAE program.
The financial aid awarded through this program can be applied only to the registration fee and can be combined with any other scholarship or financial aid that the recipient receives, except financial aid that is the product of agreements between the University and businesses or institutions. The total of all scholarships awarded may not exceed the amount of the MDGAE registration fee; if this occurs, the difference will be subtracted from the financial aid under this program.
Applicants are required to apply for all public or private scholarships for which they meet the application conditions.
Requirements for applicants
1. Applicants must hold a degree in architecture, construction engineering or another engineering discipline at the time the application is submitted.
2. Students who are completing their final year in Architecture, Construction Engineering or other engineering disciplines during the 2013-2014 academic year may also apply for the scholarship. In this case, the scholarship award will be contingent upon successful completion of this program of study by the time the master's degree program commences, including the Final Year Project or Undergraduate Thesis.
3. Applicants must meet the admission requirements for the MGDAE.
4. Applicants must have previously applied for admission to the MDGAE, and the application must be complete.
