Paraguay has recently ratified the "Don Antonio Carlos Lopez" Scholarship Programme that will provide Paraguayan students and teachers with 1245 scholarships to attend Masters and Doctorate Programmes at universities and research centres abroad. The programme, which primarily addresses scientific and technological disciplines, is valid for five years from 2015 to 2020.
The first call will be released in September 2015.
"Don Antonio Carlos Lopez" Scholarships will fully reimburse tuition costs for students and teachers attending prestigious universities abroad (based on recognized ranking systems such as Shanghai, Times Higher Education, QS and Webmetrics).
Scholarship holders are required to return to Paraguay at the end of their studies and reside in the country for a minimum of 5 years. Holders that fail to comply with this measure will have to return the scholarship.
Applications will be accepted both directly from students and through national agencies.
