EDP Renováveis and Fundación EDP grant Green Education Scholarships in Spain
This initiative is part of the corporate social responsibility policy promoted by Fundación EDP to support education of new generations.
Green Education is a scholarship program launched by EDPR en 2011 with the purpose of offering financial support for the educational development of children and young ones coming from families with limited resources.
This year 68 scholarships were granted in Spain, in the regions of Andalucía, Aragón and Cataluña for a total of 56,500 euros. Beneficiaries were selected from among numerous requests submitted from all regions in Spain where EDPR is present.
According to João Paulo Costeira, COO of EDPR Europe: “We have always been concerned about the future generations and how they prepare to face the challenges that remain ahead of them.”
The commitment with EDPR with society and the new generations is constant and growing. Proof of that is the more than 34% increase in the number of Green Education program scholarships with respect to last year.
It is expected that Green Education scholarships be also granted in other countries where EDPR operates, such as Portugal, France, UK, Italy, Poland and Romania.
