National Tuition Scholarships

Your donations through Global Giving support student scholarships and school programs. Other good news is that International Friends of Belize renewed $500usd scholarships for three Ocean Academy students. More than 50 students applied nation-wide. We are so proud, and know that these scholarships make a huge difference in our students' lives.
