School of Education Scholarship

$1,750 provides a teacher training program scholarship for a public elementary school teacherMost teachers in Guatemalan public elementary schools do not have any post-secondary education. UVG has been a pioneer in the training of these teachers, offering the only profesorado program in elementary education, and the only Mayan/Spanish language elementary education program in Central America. Teachers in Guatemala earn very little, generally about $300 per month. The tuition at UVG for the profesorado program of $1,750 is beyond their means. This problem is compounded since teachers with this additional certificate do not earn any more than other teachers without it. A gift for scholarships for these teachers will make a lasting difference in the lives of all the students they teach during their entire career.
