New York, 5 June 2014. Emilio Botín, chairman of Banco Santander; Fernando Alonso, driver of Scuderia Ferrari, and Pat Fry, chief engineer of the team, presented last night at Columbia University (New York) a research project on innovation in the field of automotive technology with Scuderia Ferrari. The bank will invest 150,000 USD in the programme, which will include a stay for a student from this university at the headquarters of Ferrari in Maranello (Italy).

During the event, which had the participation of engineering and applied science students, Emilio Botín said: “This is a unique opportunity to know from first hand all the ‘secrets’ about the number one competitions cars manufacturer in the world. If you have ever dreamed about working for a company like Ferrari, Santander can make it happen.”

Fernando Alonso added: “I hope that you make the most of this opportunity, which can open many doors in your professional career”. Pat Fry, in turn, stated: “We are delighted to host the world’s top talent in Maranello. We will work together with the winning project to get the most out of it”.

On the one hand, Banco Santander renews its support of Yale University’s Art Gallery, and its dedication to the study, conservation and presentation of the recently discovered painting “La educación de la Virgen”, by Diego Velázquez.

The bank continues to support the Yale World Fellows Program on leadership development, which targets students engaged with global change; the “Yale College-Banco Santander International Mobility Program”, which includes grants to study Spanish and Portuguese, and for those interested in studying Arabic languages, and internship, study and research grants in the context of the Summer Programme developed by Yale together with its partners from the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU).

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.
