Lto University of Huelva has launched the second edition of ‘Rural Campus’, an initiative promoted by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge in collaboration with the Ministry of Universities and the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (CRUE) that will allow University students with any official degree carry out academic training practices in municipalities with fewer than 5,000 inhabitants in all communities in Spain.
Through this initiative, launched through the Office of the Vice President for Innovation and Employability to promote university training practices in disadvantaged rural environments and with problems of depopulation, a total of 20 students from Huelva will be able to carry out these practices with a grant of 1,000 euros gross per month.
The ‘Rural Campus’ practices will be carried out in a minimum of three months, extendable up to five months in justified cases, in the period between May 15 and November 15, 2023.
This program aims to encourage the contribution of university talent in rural environments, promote economic diversification and a better territorial distribution and promote youth employment, fostering the linking of the population of different areas with rural spaces, generating new forms of roots and link, that promote activity and create employment opportunities in the territory, especially in territories that require strengthening population and economic activity with the presence of university students.
Participating entities must be located in rural areas with depopulation problems, whether they are town halls, associations or other bodies, as well as associations, chambers of commerce or non-profit foundations and legally constituted companies.
Rural entities must register on the ICARO portal
Entities must be registered in the ‘ICARO’ practice management platform, https://uhu.portalicaro.es, and formalize the offer in the Rural Campus Program. If you offer accommodation, you must indicate it in the ‘observations’ field. The application submission period ends on March 19.
