The Fundación para el Futuro de Colombia (COLFUTURO) is a financial support initiative for Colombian professionals that have demonstrated academic excellence, who wish to broaden their career development by pursuing Master or Doctoral research higher degree studies at the top global 100 universities to build on human capital for the future of Colombia.

The Scholarship Loan Program has been developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (Minciencias) and with the support from private industry and NGOs that wish to promote and encourage study abroad opportunities for professionals to gain the skills necessary to return to Colombia and contribute to the academic and public sector priority areas.

COLFUTURO offers each postgraduate coursework candidate up to US$50,000, and each HDR candidate up to US$300,000 (depending on the research area and the chosen university's research ranking), which may be requested in full, even if the program is one year. Candidates may be awarded scholarships for 80% of the loaned amount, provided they accomplish these requirements:
