Of those 88 students, 75 will go to high school, while 13 will go to University.
Keeping Kids in School is all about keeping kids in school. How? Through the Scholarship Program.
This year, 25 students with KKIS Scholarships finished High School, which meant 25 new places to replace.
So, during the first week of June, The KKIS Project visited three public junior schools to give scholarship applications. The applications were given to students who were chosen by the Directors based on their high grades and financial need.
After two weeks, board members and staff carefully read every application in which applicants had to write an essay explaining why they wish to have a scholarship, why education is so important for them, who inspires them and their dreams.
Every single student is given a grade by using a mathematical system where applicants are given points per each criteria: financial need, grades and essay.
Five more students will go to University!
Last year the number of students going to University with a KKIS Scholarship was 7. This year, thanks to donors and sponsors, 6 more students will go to University, adding a total of 13 students in this program!
The number of scholarship granted also depends on the donations.
The KKIS Project is a US and Mexico non-profit, this means that all the help given to students in Playa del Carmen depends on the number of sponsors and donors collaborating through financial assistance. From individuals to companies, both raise funds through our website, participating in campaigns or during the Annual Fundraising event.
