FundacionPatino250x250This foundation was created in 1958 by the heirs of the Bolivian industrialist Simon I Patiño (1860-1947). Patiño de Ginebra follows several programmes in various fields such as Education, Culture and Research, in order to form high-level Bolivian professionals.

For this purpose and in accordance with the Cooperation Agreement held with the University of Salamanca, the Patiño Foundation provides grants for Bolivian graduates in fields of Social Sciences in order to do a specialization course at the University of Salamanca one academic year long.
