For a Brighter Future...

After high school, opportunities to continue studying are very slim for many young people in the area of Samara and El Torito, Costa Rica. The cost of post-secondary education is high considering transportation, matriculation, tuition and other costs.


Thus many youth often start and then cannot continue, or they take breaks in study and find returning difficult.


With the help of the local community and donors like you, CREAR would like to award this scholarship to two students each year. Learn More at the Link below.
