Eighty years ago Federico Santa Maria's dream became true. He is probably the greatest philanthropist the history of Chile has ever known, providing a Higher Education Institution giving the possibility to outstanding low income youngsters, to study, enabling social mobility, and thus promoting equity in educational terms for all the inhabitants of this country. The history of the University has been marked by a solid education in Engineering, Science and Technology, and by the promotion of an comprehensive spirit through the development of culture, physical activity, solidarity activities and entrepreneurial skills. The beginnings of Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria go back to the altruist dream of Federico Santa Maria, who set the foundation of the Institution in his will and testament in Paris, in 1920. He states his wish to contribute to the progress and increase the cultural horizon of the country . With these altruist ideas, he pursues to make easier the entrance to the academic life to the low-income compatriots whose merit, aptitudes and high school grades are excellent. One year after his death on April 27th, 1926, the Foundation under his name is created and an Academic Institution to procure an integral formation of its students was implemented. These should assure academic excellence in the professional, scientific and human education based not only on universal values of man but also on social responsibility. Thus, his dream becomes an earnest testimony of the benefactor`s philanthropy.
