At the service of education
The actions promoted by the Fundació this year again made it possible to provide focused support to young people who wanted to complete their academic training with postgraduate studies, as well as to contribute to the success of other education and research initiatives, especially through the collaboration with the University of Andorra and the endowment for the Calvó Armengol International Prize.

Training is one of the pillars on which the values of Fundació Crèdit Andorrà are based. Access to quality education during their academic lives guarantees that young people will participate in the development of society as people who are educated and committed to the future of the country.
