Students Seek University Scholarships

This is the final article in series profiling local, Mexican honors students who seek to attend university although they lack the financial resources to do so. It takes only $4 USD/day over five years – or about the same amount as a cup of coffee at an upscale coffee shop – to sponsor a Jovenes Adelante student. Jovesnes Adelante is a 16-year old nonprofit whose students have an 85-percent graduation rate – higher than in the US, Mexico, or Canada.

And, Jovenes Adelante offers tax deductions in each of those countries. Read about these outstanding students and open your hearts to sponsoring one or more. Individuals, organizations, and businesses enjoy the benefits of sponsorship. For more information, contact Robin Loving, president, at [email protected], 415 112 3413 (SMA), and/or 925 476 8117 (US/Canada) for more information.

While we cannot guarantee a certain student for a specific sponsor, we can share with you the opportunity to watch amazing talent grow into opportunities to better the world!
