2016 University Scholarships

TALICA awards scholarships every 5 years to two of the most deserving students from the secondary schools in villages Merida and La Palma on the island of Ometepe.  Students are selected by local school committees.  Candidates are chosen based on academic achievement, community involvement, and financial need.

TALICA Scholars are given up to $900 annually for 5 years of study.  As little as $75 per month can give students the chance to become a driving force in their communities.
