- Applications can be submitted until 31 March, through Iberdrola's corporate website · This year it includes the possibility of applying for internships with the company
- Nearly 1,000 young people have been supported by Iberdrola since this scholarship programme was launched
Iberdrola has launched a new call for applications for master's scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year, with the aim of promoting excellence in training the next generations and promoting the employability of young people in the sectors of the future, especially those that are linked to the energy transition and digital transformation.
This year, Iberdrola is focusing on graduates and students in the last year of their degree studies in Spain, United Kingdom and Mexico who want to complete their studies in areas related with engineering, electric mobility, big data, the environment and climate, among others.
This year, a total of 35 candidates will be selected for this programme, which will have a total allocation of close to one million euros. Interested parties can submit their applications on the Talent section of the group's website. The beneficiaries of these latest scholarships will join the nearly 1,000 students who have already enjoyed Iberdrola scholarships in recent years.
When evaluating the candidates, in addition to academic qualifications and language proficiency, other factors will be taken into account, such as their CV, the area of interest for the research project and their references. After they pass the pre-selection stage, the company will conduct a personal interview with the candidates to evaluate their personal situation, overall education and motivation.
An additional incentive in Iberdrola's call for applications for scholarships is the possibility of becoming an intern with the company. In 2019 alone, Iberdrola took on more than 1,400 interns, who had the opportunity to share in the work of one of the world's leading energy companies.
