Scholarships & Advanced Learning
Many families in our community are unable to provide financial resources for their children’s education. Provee comes alongside the family by providing financial support and spiritual guidance. For many Guatemalans, higher education will expand job opportunities and increase the potential for greater income. The reality is most impoverished families forgo this potential, sending their young children into the workforce for minimal incomes that reinforce their poverty.
Provee's desire is to break this cycle of poverty by offering High School and University scholarships to students in the San Lucas public school system. Our five-year scholarship commitment allows the opportunity for the student to break down the walls the culture in Guatemala puts up and further their education for a better life.
Provee offers a 5-year scholarship commitment for students entering 7th grade and graduating 11th grade (Guatemala Senior Year). The cost per High School Scholarship is $1,080 per year. Scholarship awards include education fees, books, supplies, uniforms, and extracurricular activities. Our 5+ year commitment provides an opportunity for students to overcome generational poverty with higher education and provides an opportunity towards living out their potential. Students receive access to our newly developed tutoring center, which will create a new job opportunity as the Computer Lab Assistant. 2 days a week we provide transportation for each student to our Ministry Center, a morning snack, and a nutritious lunch to end each day with us. This new development will provide advanced learning opportunities for students who need access to online education, tutoring, and mentoring from our volunteers.
How does the Scholarship Sponsorship work?
Provee currently has 22 students in our scholarship program. Each year we aim to award additional students a scholarship. When a student is awarded a scholarship, they become part of the Provee family. When you sponsor a student, you will receive a welcome box with a personal thank you letter from your student, a picture of your student, a complete profile of your student, and a special gift! You will have the opportunity to connect with your student vie email where you can send your student a letter and they can respond back to you with a letter. You will receive monthly updates on how your student is doing, how their grades are, and how you can pray for them. On special occasions, we can set up a zoom call with your student for you to engage with them one-on-one.
Each student needs 2 sponsors for us to fulfill our commitment to our Scholarship Project. With a monthly donation of $45, you are helping provide the financial resources needed provide for our student's education and the further development of our project!
