The Programa de Apoyo Integral (PAI, or Comprehensive Support Program) Opens its 2022 Call

Undergraduate students at the Universidad Alberto Hurtado have until October 18th to apply to the program, which provides financial and comprehensive support and encourages a commitment to service within participants’ personal and professional growth.

The Programa de Apoyo Integral (PAI; or Comprehensive Support Program, in English) has been carried out since 2017 by Fundación Mar Adentro and the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (UAH). Aimed at undergraduate students who are studying at the University and have not been able to access the state’s free admission to higher education, its objective is to provide financial support so that they can successfully complete their education and, at the same time, encourage students to widen their networks, strengthen their personal development and expand their environmental conscience.

The program considers the following components and commitments:
● Financial support for up to 100% of fees and other expenses associated with studies and food expenses.
● Personalized support to help students fully strengthen their potential.
● Comprehensive development activities which include volunteer work, outreach activities and workshops on comprehensive development, dialogue and exchange of multidisciplinary experiences to complement their academic training.

Those who are interested in applying to PAI 2022 must be undergraduate students at UAH who have completed their first year of studies, without having accessed the state’s free admission to higher education. They must also be within the top 35% of their course’s ranking and demonstrate that they require financial support for their studies. It should be noted that the selected students will be chosen by a team composed of members from Fundación Mar Adentro, the Centro Universitario Ignaciano (CUI) and the Student Affairs Directorate of UAH.

A virtual presentation on PAI 2022 will take place on October 14th, at 1:00 PM to answer questions sent via the application form or to info@fundacionmaradentro.cl. All applicants must participate.
