It’s nice to be back with another interesting post for our Mexican readers that might want to be beneficiaries of the Benito Juarez Scholarship. This post will give you a general overview of the project and also look at the frequently asked questions of the Benito Juarez Scholarship.
The mission of Benito Juarez Scholarship: To Avoid School Dropout
In Mexico, only 7 out of 10 young people between 15 and 17 have the opportunity to study the upper-middle level. However, 38% of students who drop out of school attribute it to a lack of financial resources. For example, in the 2016-2017 cycle, only 59% of those who had to do so completed their studies.
High school dropout represents a risk factor for young people and exposes them to violence and crime. A school is a safe place where they can develop their full potential.
The Future of Mexico is in Education
The “Benito Juárez” Welfare Scholarship program in Higher Secondary Education will provide financial support to students who are studying at a public school to reduce school dropout.
It will also seek to promote the participation of beneficiaries in activities to improve their community, contributing to their human development, strengthening their identity with the social environment and promoting national pride.
