Stella for Staff

Services Staff Mobility Programme

The Stella for Staff mobility programme facilitates professional and intercontinental mobility for services staff of CGU and CONAHEC member universities. An opportunity to learn how they work in the different departments of the universities participating in the programme and to live a multicultural experience, through temporary stays in other Higher Education institutions of the network and CONAHEC.

In 2002, the Stella for Staff programme was born as an initiative to offer administrative staff the same opportunities available to students and administrative staff at that time. Since that year, the Compostela Group of Universities launches an annual call for grants for professional placements at CGU and CONAHEC member universities. These grants are intended solely for services staff of the CGU member universities.

Below you can see all the information concerning the Stella for Staff 2021 call.
