ASCENZA renews partnership with the EPIS Social Grants 2022 program
ASCENZA is once again one of the partners of the EPIS Social Grants program (EPIS - Business Association for Social Inclusion), strengthening our contribution to the social inclusion of young people, and promoting equal access to education and academic merit.
EPIS Social Grants 2022 aims to support, in a continuous and targeted manner, students from underprivileged families. This support makes it possible to assist these students in their academic path (secondary school and university) and reward good practices in Education, for social inclusion and professional and/or occupational insertion.
The 2022 edition represents an increase over the 2021 program, with a total of 163 Social Grants (+10%) and a record investment of 337 thousand euros (+16%).
The program has national coverage and is organized into 7 areas and 15 distinct categories. Following the context of the war in Europe, EPIS has extended this program to young students from refugee or displaced families studying in Portugal. Applications are open until September 23 and all schools, institutions and students studying in Portugal can apply.
