Scholarship for Ilena
Scholarship for Ilena has been fully funded
About the Cause
Ilena is going into 8th grade, and our church has identified her as a bright student who wants to continue her education, but cannot currently afford the full tuition fees. Because we know that having an education is an important factor for future employment and security, we want to provide her with a scholarship for this next year of schooling that starts in January of 2022.
In Guatemala, the school year is 10 months long. Middle school is 3 years long, and high school is either 2 or 3 years depending on the type of classes. Our church has seen that once students are given grants for high school, they are encouraged and often continue on to college. We have also noticed that their families will help pay for their school fees.
We would like to provide a scholarship of Q3,000 (~$390) to Ilena. This scholarship could change her trajectory, as currently a full education is not a privilege all students have. We believe wholeheartedly that she will go on do to wonderful things in our community, and we want to invest in empowering her to do just that!
We know that the cost of the schooling year is still expensive for one person or family, but maybe you could ask your friends, family members, or church family to help pay for the cost together? We are so grateful for any support you can provide, even if it is just your prayers. We will be keeping you in our prayers as well as we thank God for the people who are supporting Ilena and our church from all the way in the USA!
Thank you for 2022 scholarships
Prayer of Thanks to God for the opportunity of participants to obtain an N2N Scholarship where parents were given the first payment and a personal folder to archive supporting documents. A monthly talk is held on topics of interest to participants and parents. They are very grateful for this opportunity so that their children can study.
