100 Paraguayan Teachers to Get Scholarships to Study in Spain

ASUNCION – Officials from Spain and Paraguay signed an agreement on Tuesday to educate 100 Paraguayan teachers at Spanish universities, with the aim of having them return home to train colleagues.

Spanish International Education Service, or SEPIE, director Pablo Martin thanked Paraguayan officials for looking to Spain for the graduate scholarship program.

“This is a special case” because it involves the training of future teachers, who will be responsible for educating new generations in Paraguay, Martin said during the signing ceremony at the Finance Ministry in Asuncion.

Paraguayan Education Minister Enrique Riera, for his part, said the agreement was “historic” because public education had been left behind over time.

The grant will open the door to universities in the “first world,” Riera said.

Currently, there are about 70,000 teachers in Paraguay, most from “very humble” backgrounds, but with brilliant minds, and now some of them will have an opportunity to study in Europe, Riera said.

“It’s almost an incredible dream,” the education minister said.

The SEPIE, an independent agency under the Spanish Education Ministry, is responsible managing and promoting the Erasmus+ program.
