About the regional team

The regional team is led by Dalinda Perez Alvarez Rodriguez. Dalinda is based in Santiago, Chile alongside her colleagues Scott Bennett and Teresa Guerro.

The regional centre in Chile was set up to aid collaboration between the University and partners in education, business and government across the region.

Dalinda works with the International Dean to devise and deliver the University's regional plan for Latin America. 

The University has an established tradition of academic interaction in Latin America in a number of fields, including energy, public health, economics and the preservation of delicate ecosystems.

There are University scholarships available to support the most talented students from Latin America. The Edinburgh Global Scholarships are available for students who are applying for PhD studies.


We have a strong and proactive alumni community across Latin America with Regional Contacts in Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina and Uruguay. Currently there are over 1750 alumni across the region and this number is growing rapidly. For example, Chile was the first country in the region to formally set up an alumni club and has grown to almost 100 members in less than a year. We are delighted that the Caribbean now has an alumni group too.
