Individuals from Latin America interested in either of the MA

College London should consider applying for funding under the Alban
scheme, described at www.programalban.org. The following is a brief
extract from the information found at that site:

>by the European
>Commission in 2002, addressed to Latin American citizens, from
>Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile,
>Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala,
>Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua,
>Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Further, the
>Programme is addressed to Latin
>American students and professionals that will benefit from
