SPONSOR A STUDENT
Becas Matanchen Scholarship Program provides scholarships to deserving students from our area to attend university in Tepic, the state capital of Nayarit, Mexico. A student accepted into our program must pass a very competitive exam to be admitted to one of the two best universities in the state - the Autonomous University of Nayarit (UAN) and the Technological Institute of Tepic (TECH).
We have 28 students in law school, nursing, dentistry, research chemistry, mathematics, education, psychology, accounting, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, business administration, civil engineering, architecture and many other areas!!
We operate on sponsorships and donations. We typically ask our sponsors for a minimum of a four year commitment since we make a four year commitment to each student. A full sponsorship is 1200 dollars per year, a half sponsorship is 600 dollars per year, and a quarter sponsorship is 300 dollars per year.
We are actively seeking new sponsors due to the rapid growth of our program. The costs of tuition and the housing we provide to the students in Tepic have increased substantially.
All contributions go 100% to direct student costs. The sponsors do not receive any reimbursement for any out of pocket expenses for gasoline, travel, use of workers, etc. There are no salaries paid to anyone.
We would like to invite you to be a sponsor. Your support would be very helpful to allow our program to continue to provide educational scholarships to deserving students from our area. The students are so intelligent and eager and this is their best chance to make a better life for themselves.
Thank you for your interest in our program and we look forward to your response. Please contact us if we can provide you any additional information.
