Awards

The Foundation awards are dedicated to Francisco Amorós y Ondeano, Marqués de Sotelo; a military and pedagogue Valencian born in 1770. Because of his ideas he had to go into exile in France in 1813. Throughout his life, both in Spain and France, he promoted gymnastics through publications such as Manuel d’éducation physique, gymnastique et morale and through the direction of institutions such as the Real Instituto Militar Pestalozziano in Madrid and the Gymnase Normal Militaire et Civil in Paris. He generated his own gymnastic method of pedagogical, therapeutic, rehabilitative and military application. He is considered the father of modern physical education in Spain and France, matter that ascended to the category of science. He died in Paris in 1848, leaving a legacy that still survives.

If you want to go deeper into this character you can read this monograph.

The aims of the Foundation could not materialize without the ingenuity and intelligence that Francisco Amorós had in our scientific field. We can think of no better way to remember and pay tribute to his memory than putting the name of Amorós to the Foundation’s awards.

For example, in an final degree work project whose initial donation amount is 70 euros, we see in the table that its real cost is only 17.50 euros.
