70% of 7th graders in Mexico believe they will graduate with a university degree, yet according to the Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), only 45% of Mexican students who start 9th grade in high school receive their diploma.

Improving lives through education by Keeping Kids in School

This is where KKIS comes in – we believe in public education and that all children should have access to 12 years of public education through graduation with a diploma.

That’s why we rely on donors and sponsors to provide scholarships to deserving students who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to continue their education.

We view ourselves as the bridge between finding the promising students and providing them with the helping hand they need to transform their lives.

The KKIS commitment to supporting students extends beyond financial aid.

Our high school scholarship recipients are chosen based on previous grade point average, financial need, and their essay for why they want to continue their education.

KKIS scholars are assigned a KKIS Advisor – a volunteer who provides mentorship and support through grade-specific curriculum designed to help students better understand themselves and the path to achieve their goals.

Our scholarships literally keep students in school, who otherwise may not have been able to continue their education due to economic reasons.

By covering expenses such as exams, entrance fees, transportation, uniforms, and school supplies, our students can focus on their studies and achieve their goals.

At KKIS, we firmly believe in the importance of public education

  Our programs go beyond financial support – we also provide connections outside of the students’ communities and expose them to a different way of life. This prepares our students to enter a world yet unknown, made possible only with an education.

Join us in our mission to provide scholarships for brighter futures. Please donate today to our high school scholarship program.

Graduating KKIS High School Students have the opportunity to apply for our university scholarship program.

There are many reasons students don’t stay in school from family dynamics to transportation to peer pressure to finances. At KKIS we have professionals trained to help with all of the issues these teenagers face as part of everyday life.

Understanding the culture and lifestyle of each student is just as important as looking at their GPA. Each student is a person and has very real needs as well as wants and dreams. Our mission is to fulfill their dream of obtaining a diploma by completing school through the 12th grade. 

Thanks to donors like you we are able to have  100 students enrolled in our high school scholarship program to earn their diploma and be part of the 42% of Riviera residents who have graduated high school.

Our scholarship program is designed to support students who demonstrate academic potential, financial need, and a commitment to their education.

We work closely with local high schools to identify promising students who are in need of financial assistance, and we provide scholarships to those who meet our criteria.
