Four UM students awarded ELAP scholarships

Engineering and Business students will study at the University of Ottawa and Queen´s University in Canada

Florencia Bigatti and Felipe Peselewitz, from the Engineering School, will study at the University of Ottawa from August to December while Analía Nebot and Guzmán Pintos from the School of Business Administration & Economics, will go to Queen´s University in January 2018 to study one semester.

In the past five years, fifteen UM students have been awarded the ELAP Scholarship. This is a unique opportunity for Uruguayan students.
