Hello, my name is José Pérez. I am a geographic engineering student at the National University “Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos”. I have been fortunate to be a recipient of the Accommodation Scholarship awarded by the same university and the Boarding Grant awarded by the Ministry of Education.

My contribution to society during the pandemic has been through the generation of the OXIMAP platform, which has been a great support for the most vulnerable families during Covid-19, by facilitating access to safe oxygen recharging points, cheap and, in some cases, free”. José Luis Pérez is from Chanchamayo, a province in the Junín region, located in the central highlands of Peru.

Thanks to these two grants he mentions, he can study at a university.

Scholarships and grants are indicators of the financial increase invested in public higher education.
