"Enhancing educational opportunities for Panamanians is crucial to the Torrijos administration's vision for economic and social development," said Vice President and Foreign Minister Lewis. "These scholarships will allow some of Panama's best and brightest students to supplement their education with an international perspective that will help them contribute to Panama's development upon their return home."

Through the Fulbright-SENACYT program, the government of Panama will provide funding for up to 10 scholarships per year to Panamanian graduate students or professors pursuing degrees in the fields of science or technology at the Masters and Ph.D. levels. The scholarships will fund two to four academic years, and will cover tuition, roundtrip airfare, room and board, books, health insurance and a settling-in allowance.
