Generous scholarship for a Patagonian adventure

11 January 2018

Cardiff University’s School of Welsh, with funding provided by Banco Santander, is offering five scholarships worth £2,000 each to enable undergraduate students to travel to Patagonia for a month of work experience during the summer of 2018.

The scholarships are open to all undergraduate students who will continue as undergraduate students during the 2018/19 academic year.

The successful students will support the work of ‘Cynllun yr Iaith Gymraeg’ in Chubut, Patagonia. This scheme is a partnership between Welsh Government, the British Council, Cardiff University, The Wales-Argentina Society and Menter Iaith Patagonia. Mr Rhisiart Arwel, who works for the School of Welsh, is the scheme leader. The work experience is varied and includes activities such as support work in nurseries and primary schools as well as classes teaching Welsh to adults.

An information session will be held with Dr Jon Morris and last year’s scholarships recipients in Room 1.72 on Monday 29 January at 1.10pm.
