PUENTES ACCESS GRANTS DUE December 23, 2020
The grants can be used as credit towards participation in the Puentes Remote and In-Person Internship Program during 2021.
Puentes Access Grants help bridge the funding gap and support high-achieving BIPOC and low-income students. We recognize that the world is not as equitable as it could and should be. Across the globe, countless academic, political, and social institutions have failed many people for generations. At Puentes, we are committed to diversity, and we strive to make our programs accessible to everyone, regardless of socioeconomic status, identity, race, or background. MORE Details below.
Remote internship has been possible for students while taking classes.

· In-Person Summer Start Dates: May 29 or June 5 (Buenos Aires City); May 29 (Mendoza); June 5 (Montevideo)
· Priority deadline: January 5; Final deadline: March 1
