Hola from Patagonia!

17 April 2014

Two students won scholarships from the School of Welsh, through the generosity of the Santander Universities scheme, to travel to Patagonia during the summer recess. 

Siwan Gwyn Jones from Carmarthen and Angharad Lewis from Llanfair Caereinion, who are about to embark upon their final year of studies, received scholarships of £3,000 each to undertake for a month's work experience in Patagonia.

During their period of work experience working for Menter Patagonia (The Welsh Language Initiative in the Gaiman) they posted a video on Youtube highlighting their experiences in the Welsh settlement in Argentina.
