Scholarships for Girls
Mujeres en Cambio is a scholarship program for girls from rural Mexico who show promise for completing their educations. Most of their parents are illiterate. The girls are given scholarships for tuition and other funds, called beccas, to cover the other costs of the school year e.g. books, transportation, supplies ,uniforms, shoes. The program begins in 8th grade and continues through university.
The students must maintain an 86% grade average to be in the program.
Due to covid, scholarships have decreased to 169 girls. However The incoming 8th graders are up to 23 students. This year we will support 15 middle and High School students and 12 University students. As better educated women they will be able to make important contributions to Mexico’s social, cultural and economic future.
