The “la Caixa” Foundation is a Spanish social, non-profit organisation that aims to contribute to the progress of people and society. Its main lines of action are to offer opportunities to the most vulnerable, to support progress through educational, science and cultural activities, to contribute to the greater understanding and improvement of the environment, to support research into life and health sciences, social sciences and humanities and to foster the dissemination of science and technology.
Since 1982, the “la Caixa” Foundation manages fellowship programmes, by means of which over 4,000 young talented fellows have been awarded grants to take postgraduate studies both in Spain and abroad. The “la Caixa” fellowship programmes are well known for their prestige, the seriousness and rigour of their selection processes, the excellent academic level of their fellows and the impact that they have on their fellows’ career prospects.
