Scholarships

Serenity Sands Scholarship Program

Mission

Our goal is to improve the educational opportunities for the Corozal Church of Christ (CCofC) youth by providing funding for further schooling in the Corozal District of Belize.

How it Works

The principal at the CCofC elementary school helps us identify 1 or 2 students who might be a worthy recipient of the Serenity Sands Scholarship. Each prospective student supplies us with an essay letter and grade transcripts.

If the student has a personal sponsor, or if the fund has the required amount, a full scholarship is presented. We pay all tuition fees and purchase the books, supplies, uniforms, and shoes required. A partial scholarship pays all tuition fees.

Donations

Without funding, many of these students would not be able to attend high school (or college, as it is called here in Belize). They sincerely appreciate the funding Serenity Sands makes available through your generous donations. Please help us continue to provide this support. There are minimal banking fees, but then all remaining funds donated go into the scholarship program.

If you have any questions about supporting a CCofC student, please contact us at [email protected].

Thank you, your support makes a difference in the lives of these students.

2018-2019 Scholarship Year

We just have one student in our program this year. Tyler is in 3rd form and has received honour roll every year he has been in the program with us. We have had so many generous donations this year that we will be able to provide a full scholarship to a new student for the 2019-2020 school year!
