Reviews of National Policies for Education - Chile’s International Scholarship Programme

 

Chile has long considered education as a central priority and as key for its economic development. Over the past two decades the country has made great strides to increase the numbers of young people entering tertiary education. In 2008 Chile embarked on a bold initiative to develop its human capital with a scholarship abroad scheme – the Becas Chile Programme – which aims to train 30 000 outstanding students including teachers and technicians in institutions of their choice around the world.

 

This joint OECD and World Bank report gives an overview of human capital development in Chile; describes features of the Becas Chile Programme; analyses the strategic and operational issues; and recommends ways to maintain and fine-tune the scholarship abroad scheme. This report will be useful for both Chilean education professionals and their international counterparts.


Executive summary

In April 2009, the OECD and the World Bank published a comprehensive review of national tertiary education policy in Chile. That publication – Reviews of National Policies for Education: Tertiary Education in Chile – provides an overview and recommendations for the medium and longer term development of tertiary education in Chile. As a follow on, the government of Chile requested the joint review team to conduct a specific analysis of the Becas Chile Programme (BCP) which provides scholarships for study abroad. The purpose of the analysis was to help the government take stock of the experience to date, identify strengths and weaknesses of the policy process and consider options for taking the initiative forward in the future. This report is the result.
