In the past six years University enrolments in Spain have increased by 45%, while the amount of the scholarships has been reduced by more than 21%. European countries with excellent education such as Germany, Denmark and Norway systems, enjoy free registrations; a situation that contrasts with the Spanish reality, where more than 70% of the University must pay his studies without receiving any aid from the State.
this policy of cuts and increase in rates has caused that in recent years (2013-2014) more than 44,000 Spaniards have had to abandon their careers. This setback has especially affected (95%) to public centres, seriously jeopardizing not only the formation of the new generations and the proper use of the talent in our country; but also universal access to education and equal opportunities.
from the Faculty Invisible have launched a project supports civic pioneer. The aim is to raise funds to help those students who, despite being in a precarious socio-economic situation and to have an excellent academic record, do not receive any support from public institutions, or obtain funding are clearly insufficient and too late. These grants will be funded through the generosity of citizens through crowdfunding, a method of collective donation which has already achieved great results in countries such as the United States and England. An interim system to support those students who need it most in the current context of crisis, waiting for the institutions of the State to develop a system of effective and sustainable financing is, however, an emergency mechanism.
