PROVIDENCE – Santander Bank has extended its commitment to Providence College through 2020 with support of global exchange opportunities, research grants, scholarships and entrepreneurship studies, the bank announced.

“We believe that the best way to invest in the future is to invest in higher education,” said Roman Blanco, president and CEO of Santander U.S. “Santander is delighted to continue and expand our partnership with Providence College with its devotion to excellence, spirit of inquiry and international vision.”

The support is through the Santander Universities division, which has funded more than 4,000 projects and 37,000 scholarships globally

“Providence College shares a great relationship with Santander. We both believe in the importance of education and P.C. is very grateful Santander has chosen to invest in our students,” said Providence College President the Rev. Brian J. Shanley.

Santander has pledged to invest $100 million in U.S. college and universities over the next five years.

The renewal ceremony on Nov. 5 of Santander’s agreement to support Providence College took place in Harkins Hall in the Barnini Meeting Room located on the Providence College campus.
