One of the most common misconceptions is that education is completely free in Belize.  There are private and public schools (free tuition) however, there are numerous other expenses, e.g. uniforms, books, supplies, lunch meals, transportation.  Student that cannot afford these expenses often end up not going to school.  These issues are magnified for high school and beyond.
 
We at Believe in Belize hope that people and organizations will help us fund the different scholarship needs as we identify them and post them in this section of our website.
 
Please contact us at educationprogram@believeinbelize.org if you know of an organization interested in starting a scholarship fund for a specific cause, e.g. District, school, village, age group.
