The partnership between Yale University and Banco Santander is extended with two specific agreements. The first concerns the “Governance and Leadership for Women in Africa” project, in which Yale University and the Women for Africa Foundation will develop, with the bank’s support, a strategic programme for female leaders in African governments. The second agreement concerns Banco Santander’s support for the collaboration between Yale University and Qatar Foundation in the context of the WISE Learners Voice Program. According to this agreement, 30 students from the “Learners Voice” programme will receive training in leadership by Yale University and its “Yale World Fellows” programme. Networks, seminars and international mobility, pillars of the relationship with Princeton Today, Emilio Botín is also meeting Christopher Eisgruber, president of Princeton University, in order to renew and extend the collaboration between the university and Banco Santander, through Santander Universities. Their relations, which began in 2011, focus partly on supporting a Global Programme of Collaboration Networks, which connects Princeton University with educational institutions worldwide. Part of Banco Santander’s contribution also goes to creating global seminars abroad, which promotes the awarding of grants and the analysis of issues of global relevance supervised by the Institute for International and Regional Studies at Princeton University. Another line of collaboration is a mobility programme for the university’s undergraduate students, which enables them to study abroad. Those awarded are selected according to the guidelines of the Princeton University’s Office of International Programs.
