To provide scholarships to low income students, with an excellent academic record, in Puerto Vallarta, so that they may improve their quality of life, become self-sufficient and contribute to the progress of the community.
To be a Non-Profit Organization that provides honest and transparent functioning, and focuses all of its efforts to reduce school dropout rates in our city, by means of granting academic scholarships.
To increase our fundraising and institutional support capabilities and form diverse alliances that will strengthen and allow more opportunities to an increasing number of students in Puerto Vallarta.
Becas Vallarta A.C. supports children who receive scholarships starting in the second year of secondary school and continuing until they receive their degree from the university. In the past 52 years we have supported five generations of students and presently have 406 scholarship recipients.
The selection process begins in secondary schools, with the help of the Social Worker from each school and a socioeconomic study of the family. Each file is presented to the Board of Directors who then decides if the student qualifies to be granted a scholarship. Those who wish to be scholarship recipients must have an academic grade point average of 8.5 or above.
In education you support is an investment!
