Challenge

Two-thirds of high-school graduates in the Colombian Caribbean Coast do not have access to college education. The low number of college-educated individuals contributes to a growing decrement of living standards, lack of job opportunities, absence of committed community leadership, which exacerbate poverty, and stunts development. Thereby, there is a missed opportunity to improve the well-being and competitiveness of the community that can be seized through enabling access to education.

Solution

This project will increase the coverage of quality education by strengthening the scholarship program, a priority to Universidad del Norte. It will provide free tuition and financial aid in undergraduate programs, English language, food, transportation and study material for scholars. It will offer comprehensive academic support, complementary programs and a skilled workforce to promote an equitable and inclusive institutional environment that enable scholars complete their studies.

Long-Term Impact

This project aims to educate underserved high-school students from the Colombian Caribbean Coast. Enabling access to education is the first step out of poverty and toward increasing living standards. Educating the next generation of leaders will ensure a positive future for our country.
