The Adopt a Scholar program is designed to provide increased access for local children who are in need of financial assistance, thereby creating a more diverse student population. Local national families must apply for scholarships with an interview of both the parents and the student. An economic evaluation establishes the level of financial support for the student. Financial support is given at the 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% rates. Teachers and administration document the student’s academic and social performance, as well as the families financial commitment. Students who receive a scholarship are expected to uphold the values of the school as well as a passing academic grade. All parents of Costa Verde are also required to give a minimum number of volunteer hours back to the school. Through this ongoing program, CVIS and our donors continue to support the community by providing access to quality education.

ADOPTION AMOUNTS RANGE FROM 25% ($1,500) to 100% ($5,000)
