For the 2020 school year, we have 80 students from 7th to 9th grade between both VisionTrust Guatemala programs. Eight of those students already have a full scholarship donated by Guatemalan families and 13 students’ families have committed to cover 50% of the scholarship cost. (Twelve families from our Los Verdes program and one from Cruz Blanca.)
In efforts to reduce the cost of scholarships for the upcoming year, we received approval to utilize worksheets in lieu of textbooks. The current cost of a full scholarship is $425, which covers the enrollment fee, monthly payments to the school that provides the long-distance platform, an English textbook, and all the school supplies utilized throughout the year.
In total, we need thirteen half scholarships at $212.5 each and fifty-nine full scholarships at $425 each.
