The Beca scholarship program provides financial assistance for tuitions to local public schools and universities. This vital help to our local community ensures all students have access to education. The program originated in 2003 with just three scholarships and has grown to 167 annual recipients. While the Palapa School has joined the scholarship recipient program, The Palapa Society continues to give scholarships to students attending other public schools in the area.
Why Scholarships? In Mexico, students must pay for a portion of their schooling. The Palapa Society’s Beca Scholarship Program covers necessities such as tuition, books, uniforms, and supplies. To qualify, candidates must demonstrate merit and have a financial need. Becarios perform several community service activities and participate in fundraising events. Over 90 scholarships (and over 550 since 2003) are awarded annually to Todos Santos middle school, high school and university students.
To Give: To help assist our financial need to provide scholarships to public schools and Universities, please make a pledge of $300 USD per year (Jr. High/High School) or $500 per year for University (includes testing and licensing fees).
