Although public school tuition is free to elementary and high school students in Nicaragua, the associated costs (such as uniforms, school supplies, food and transportation) can add up. Many school-aged youth are unable to attend school simply because they cannot afford notebooks and pencils.
In response to this need, SOL offers comprehensive scholarships to economically impoverished students who, without this program, would be unable to continue their studies. These scholarships are offered to students from the first grade through university.
We just launched a campaign to raise the funds needed to keep our 80 scholarship students in school in 2017. Please consider making a donation today to support our students!
