Colombia signs partnership with Purdue University

Mitchell E. Daniels and Santos

Colombia’s executive branch’s administrative science department, “Colciencias,” signed an alliance Monday with Purdue University in Indiana to offer undergraduate and graduate programs for Colombian students.  

The Colombian government will help finance students who wish to pursue degrees at Purdue.

“We have signed a memorandum of agreement between Purdue University and Colciencias in order to finance…high levels of study, a doctorate level…all for those young Colombians that wish to attend the Purdue University,” announced the Minister of Education, Maria Fernanda Campo.

Purdue, located in the northwest of Indiana and famous for graduating the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong, has partnered with Colombia before in boosting scientific research. Monday’s deal however will pave the way for Colombian students to obtain scholarships through the government to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees.

This is an important strategy for Colombia, for our productive sector, for our universities, to be able to create a very strong relationship that allows us to advance together in goals for our country,” said the Education Minister.

The afternoon agreement concluded with President Juan Manuel Santos, Minister Campo, General Director of Colciencias Paula Arias, and Purdue University President Mitchell Daniels Jr. taking a tour of the Casa de Nariño, Colombia’s presidential palace.
