15 May MESCYT and CATIE encourage dominican professionals to obtain quality graduate degrees
CATIE and the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (MESCYT) of the Dominican Republic are working together to strengthen the capacities of professionals in the Dominican Republic in the areas of sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, in order to contribute to the sustainable and economic development of the country.
MESCYT has awarded scholarships to send a total of 16 Dominican students to CATIE for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 academic periods.
In the last decade, 10 Dominicans have graduated from CATIE (six men and four women). Therefore, according to Isabel Gutiérrez, dean of the Center’s Graduate School, this represents an important opportunity for the professional and personal growth of more young Dominicans.
