With UCLM Rural, the university offers its students paid internships against depopulation. It wants to promote internal mobility in the province, towards less populated areas. The beneficiaries will be the towns of Castilla-La Mancha with less than 5,000 inhabitants.
Ángela González, vice-rector for innovation, employment and entrepreneurship explained in Hoy por Hoy Albacete that The compensation that is raised is € 950 for the practice and the costs to cover travel or accommodation, and maintenance. That is, they can live in that town of less than 5,000 inhabitants during the 3 months that the agreement lasts.
The process now focuses on selecting the entities that offer places, after the period of contribution from different entities, until April 26.
Starting this summer, 50 C-LM students will benefit from the program. For this, the president of the provincial institution, Santiago Cabañero, has announced an investment of about 50,000 euros for about 18 students to do internships in towns with less than 5,000 inhabitants. Cabañero met this Wednesday with the rector of the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Julián Garde.
