The student scholarship program helps students of limited resources through scholarships and other activities designed to increase their educational aspirations and support community values.
About 100 young students in high school and university are selected each year according to their financial need and academic excellence.
In addition to economic support, our scholarship recipients receive tutoring oriented to their field of study.
Ninety-seven percent of our scholarship recipients stay in school with average grades of 8.5 to 10.
Fifty percent of our students are from rural areas around San Miguel de Allende.
The majority of scholarship recipients are the first in their family to graduate from college.
