Scholarship Program Overview
Tandana offers rural Ecuadorian students funding for uniforms, books, supplies, transportation, and other costs so that they can continue their secondary and higher education. We have systematized our application and reporting procedures to ensure that we give fair treatment to all students, and that all scholarship recipients maintain their eligibility (particularly concerning grades). We support almost 100 high school students.
Our university students are studying accounting, tourism, medicine, clothing design, mechanics, business adminstration, and other subjects so that they can become professionals who contribute their skills to their communities and society. In exchange for Tandana's support, university scholarship recipients engage in community service to share their new skill and knowledge for the betterment of their communities. And to help university to become a reality for more Ecuadorian youth, Tandana is launching its own prep course for university entrance exams to combat the exorbitant cost of private courses.
