Our goal is to ensure that students are able to attend school through graduation. In our University Scholarship program, most college students complete their program in four years.

Where do students go to college?

Most of the students attend university in Mexicali or Ensenada. Some students attend a night school in San Felipe. 

Do you pay the student or the school?
