Mission Statement

It is the goal of the participants to identify and select worthy recipients with need and ability to attend university or technical college in the city of Tepic. It is expected that these students and their families will support and contribute to the activities of the Library and Cultural Center and help make their community a better place to live and grow up in.

  • Applicants must fill out an application, provide transcripts and references and be interviewed by a committee of the program.
  • Selection will be based on on ability and need AND funds available.
  • Recipients will receive tuition and room from the program. They will provide their own food and transportation to/from home.
  • They will have to take an entrance exam, at their cost, and be accepted to the program of their choice.

Notice to potential donors/student supporters; the cost per year for rent on an apartment near the University of Tepic, tuition (varies by school) and incidentals (furniture, repairs, etc.) runs approximately $100 per month per student. The program has a Paypal account (see top left on this page) and ANY contributions are welcome and appreciated. We are currently supporting four students with four main supporters and several lesser contributors. We have room for at least two more students this year and could acommodate as many as four more if funding were available. Accounting reports are available quarterly to all participants.
