CENAT-CONARE scholarships

In order to support students and respond to the need of public universities to provide students with access to high-tech facilities, such as laboratories and specialized equipment available at Centro Nacional de Alta Tecnología (CeNAT- CONARE), the CeNAT-CONARE Scholarship Fund was created so that they can develop their projects. .

These works or research (thesis or graduation project) should be related to CeNAT's areas of work, namely: advanced computing, nanotechnology, biotechnological innovations, environmental management (climate change, food security, and others), and remote sensors and airborne images. .

The scholarship consists of access to and use of the CeNAT laboratories and equipment, support or advice from the specialized staff of the Center, and an economic fee that contributes to the purchase of reagents, materials, food, and transportation, among other costs..
