A scholarship from Mujeres en Cambio makes it possible for a girl who is an excellent student and maintains a high GPA to continue her education—from secundaria (junior high school) and preparatoria (senior high school) through university.
Throughout the school year we distribute scholarships to our qualifying students every two months. To qualify, the girls must bring their scholastic records proving that they have maintained a high GPA; the girls must have a minimum GPA of 8.5.
For the 2020 school year, we had 21 secondaria (junior high), 35 prepatoria (high school) and 17 university students graduate from our program. Thirty of our prepa (high school) graduates have indicated they have a desire to go on to university most of whom have a 9.point GPA or better. In total we assited 177 girls in 2020.
There are a lot of gender problems in the campos. In the past, few organizations specifically helped women who must frequently endure ignorance and violence. We believe that schooling will open their eyes and lives to a better future.
