Educational Support from High School to University

For most rural and indigenous families in Guatemala, costs associated with public school can be prohibitive. By eliminating the barrier of education expenses, we hope to enable more girls to complete high school and university.

BFB Foundation Women’s Scholarships are currently funding 100 indigenous girls in two Socorro high schools and 41 indigenous university women. University scholarship recipients may go to public university, or professional skills training classes. Funds may be used to cover tuition, school supplies, transportation and lodging.

Scholarship Programs

BFB Foundation Women’s Scholarships are currently funding 41 University scholarship students. The program started in 2015 with 8 students and has grown each year. Scholarship recipients may go to public university, professional skills training or certification classes, and funds may be used to cover tuition, university, school supplies, transportation and lodging.

BFB Foundation also supports 100 students in high school by providing funding to two Socorro high schools (Antigua and San Andres). By eliminating the barrier of education expenses, we hope to enable more girls to complete high school and go on to university.

ALL 4-1 Campaign

The ALL 4-1 Campaign brings together small groups of people who want to make a difference by sharing their giving power to support one girl’s scholarship for four years. To put a girl through University in Guatemala costs about $500 annually, so each person commits to paying $125 each year for the 4 years.
