After winning a national contest, 1,858 young people will benefit from a scholarship to attend universities such as the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, Cayetano Heredia University, National University of Engineering, National University of San Marcos, Tecsup, and Senati.

The winners of these scholarships are from different parts of Peru, such as: Arequipa, Apurímac, Ayacucho, Cajamarca, Cusco, Huancavelica, Huanuco, Junín, Loreto, Lambayeque, Lima, Madre de Dios, Moquegua, Piura, Puno, and San Martín.
