BECAS Scholarships for Students
Scholarships for Students is a grass roots program, started six years ago as a dream by two “gringas” with love in their hearts for children, and a desire to help kids in rural communities stay in school, get good grades and continue their education. In its sixth year, this scholarship program has grown to serve almost 50 students in Cabo Corrientes including the communities of: Boca de Tomatlán, Las Juntas/Los Veranos, Las Animas, Quimixto, and Yelapa—the last three reached only by boat or trail.
This is an excellent opportunity to provide a “hands up” to a student and follow them through their educational journey. Scholarships for Students works closely with Rotaract and Rotary Clubs in this area.
The yearly cost to support a student through the BECAS program is as follows:
For an amount equal to what four people dining out in the U.S. or Canada at a fine restaurant for one night, one can become a Padrino, or Godparent for Education of a student in rural Cabo Corrientes and give them an opportunity for a better future and life.
While we understand that life takes its “twists and turns”, we ask that people entering this program as Sponsors/Padrinos do so with the intent of continuing their support of this student as long as the student continues his or her education. If you can only commit to one year, we suggest a scholarship for a qualifying university student.
The requirements for students to continue to receive a Beca are based on results needed for success: 1) stay in school and 2) get good grades -- 8.5 or higher on a scale of 10. Through the Scholarships for Students program, students are mentored to take leadership and volunteer roles in their schools and communities and learn the value of working together to build healthy communities.
As a Padrino, you are encouraged to become acquainted with your student through email or Internet chat, come and visit them and their families and know that because of you, a student is getting a chance at a future that otherwise might not be available to him/her.
