OUR SCHOLARSHIP PRIZES BEGAN IN 2011 TO RECOGNIZE YOUNG STUDENT’S ACADEMIC EFFORT IN A CRUCIAL MOMENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR PERSONALITY (BETWEEN THE AGES OF 13 AND 16).
During the first two years of the scholarship program we managed to provide funding for families in la Cerdanya who helped with the project, giving grants to 30 young people. In 2014, with our collaborators from El Despertador, we provided 40 scholarships. Thanks to 92 patrons we produced the CD “Despertant una il·lusió” with music provided by Sandra Rehder, Xevi Compte, Mazzías, Cesk Freixas, Andrea Motis and the Sant Andreu Jazz Band, among others.
The CDs were sold raising the necessary funds to finance the scholarships. With the help of the Adsis Foundation, we were able to distribute numerous scholarships to children in Barcelona, helping them participate in the 2014 Pyrenees Summer Camp.
After losing momentum in 2015, we came back strong in 2016 and 2017, reaching 12 beneficiaries. We start the 20s hoping to obtain more funding to provide additional scholarships for those in need.
