The ULACIT added those who have excelled in volunteering activities and in youth, political or religious movements can also apply.

“We are an inclusive university that promotes respect and tolerance, so we are reaching out to students who are a positive influence in their environments but who today have been forced to flee their country because their rights are being systematically violated, Said Silvia Castro, rector of Ulacit.

Applicants for the scholarship will have to submit a letter issued by the Office of the High Commissioner of the United Nations for Refugees (UNHCR), stating that they are registered in Costa Rica as refugees.

The scholarships are exclusive for admission to any baccalaureate of the academic offer or degree of Ulacit.

“We are sure that these scholarships will continue to empower talented and valuable people, who have much to offer wherever they are,” added Castro.

In the last 7 years, the ULACIT has been ranked as the best private university in Central America, according to QS World University Rankings of London, which took into consideration 800 top-notch universities from around the world. ULACIT offers approximately 650 courses in mathematics, the humanities, and technology, including three bachelor’s degrees taught in English.

Most of the people who have fled the violence in Nicaragua, in the last three months, have taken refuge in Costa Rica. At least 23,000 Nicaraguans are looking to obtain asylum in that country, reported UNHCR in early August.

Approximately 200 asylum applications per day have been registered in Costa Rica according to UNHCR data, which is providing support to the Costa Rican immigration authority.
