The mission of The Solentiname Beca Fund is to encourage and assist students from Solentiname by providing them with the financial support to pursue a Universidad education. Students need to know that Universidad is an option, that this goal is within their reach, and that there are people that want to help them achieve their goal of sculpting their own visions of success and accomplishment.
This self-confidence will transfer to their school career as students realize they are capable of anything they put their minds to.

Scholar Profiles from Daily University
Our scholarships are aimed at helping young people attend university as well as empowering them in their confidence and self esteem. The majority of Nicaraguans, unless they are from quite wealthy families, attend University on weekends only (Distancia). Our goal is to enable students to attend daily University. Our principle partners are the best public universities in Nicaragua; UNAN-Leon, Intecna, technical school in Grenada. La UNI, the engineering university in Managua, and Juilgulpa Normal, a teachers college. Of course students are free to choose to attend any school they wish.
It all started back in September of '09 when we visited UNAN-Leon with two perspective students. Now, following a very thorough and transparent selection process, we are supporting 12 students in daily University.
I am 23 years old, attending my fourth year at UNAN-Leon. My family lives on Ciguana. They are fishermen. Ciguena is a small island in Solentiname.
My major at UNAN is matematics, and English. Ultimately I want to be an architect, but first I want to come back to Solentiname to teach mathmatics so that other students do not have the problems we had in Math in our first years at University. I am excited to be able to attend University in Leon.
I am 20 years old, attending my third year at UNAN-Leon. My family lives on Mancarron. We have a small hospajade and work as balsa artists. My brother Luilli joined me at UNAN-Leon last year, and my younger sisters and brother are attending CPU.
My major at UNAN is Physchology. I am excited to be able to attend University in Leon.
I am 21 years old, attending my thirdd year at La UNI, the engineering University of Nicaragua. I have always wanted to be an engineer, and I am very happy to be studying here. My plan is to come back to the Rio San Juan and Solentiname as a professional engineer.
My family lives on La Venada.
My major at La UNI is civil engineering, and I am also interested in biology. I am excited to be able to attend La UNI.
I am 21 years old, attending my third year at UNAN-Leon. My family lives in Papa Turo on the south coast of Lake Nicaragua, near to Solentiname. I attended CPU for 2 years.
My major at UNAN is Information Technology -- computers. I plan to come home to teach and repair computers so that other students can attend Univeristy like I am able to. I am excited to be able to attend University in Leon.
All donations are pooled together for each group of students, and we hope you will be able to create a personal connection with one of these students to show that "we care" about their future. It’s a tangible and measured way to support the future of Solentiname, with some great rewards!
