Sharing our success is a key business imperative. As part of making this a reality, we have partnered with ‘Fundacion Instituto de Empresa’ (IE Foundation), to offer a scholarship for young talent for each project we develop.

The ‘Young Talented Leaders’ Scholarship is awarded to one student in the community where a project has been developed, driving positive social change by supporting the progress of education in that region

To be eligible for this scholarship, the selected students must demonstrate high academic merits together with an entrepreneurial spirit, and an eagerness for personal improvement and development.

The scholarship covers all training and education costs. The accompanying grant covers tuition fees, accommodation, academic materials, travel, and meals during the four-year degree program in the IE University, in Spain.

The first ‘Young Talented Leaders’ Scholarship was awarded to Guzman Noya, a student in El Salto, Uruguay, when the 64.8 MWp La Jacinta project was completed.

“At FRV we have a strong commitment to the economic and social development of the markets and communities where we operate, and we are pleased to be able to deliver on this commitment through this innovative program”.
