FEATURED SPECIAL FUNDS

BETSE DAVIES SPECIAL STARS FUND

When founder Betse Davies learned of one exceptionally qualified scholarship applicant who could not meet the student’s full portion of expenses that Jóvenes Adelante requires, she created the Betse Davies Special Stars Fund. Now, if a student or applicant experiences unusually severe financial challenges (reduced household income through declining remittances or job loss; illness or accidents among family members; or unexpected tuition increases), the Betse Davies Fund provides top-up funding, helping to bridge a gap that can only be resolved with extra cash.

SUSI BEERE ​EMERGENCY FUND

Once in a while, a student finds him or herself in a financial emergency not of his or her making. For instance, a student got all the way to graduation and found out that his university no longer had credentialing power (we no longer recommend that school!) He found a university that would accept his credits (rare!) and gained admittance, but needed the funds to see him through a semester there to prove his abilities.

MARTA PUGA TRAVEL FUND

The purpose of this Travel Fund is to encourage our Jovenes Adelante scholarship recipients to further enhance their educational opportunities within Mexico and abroad.

1. Enroll in an internship abroad;
2. Enroll in English courses abroad;
3. To participate in an internship in Mexico related to their major.

The fund will issue a grant to pay for airfare expenses, the cost of English classes at a university for international students, and possibly other expenses related to basic living expenses while traveling.
