The BOLAR Foundation seeks academic excellence along with the personal growth of students. We hope that the scholars will acquire a solid base and then go out into the professional world to make a positive change in the community that surrounds them.
We award student scholarships to Guatemalans who do not have the economic resources to pay for a career but wish to study at the university. The scholarships are for any national university, for careers in Humanities, to study a Bachelor’s Degree. We focus on achieving the development and progress of Guatemala, with the contribution of talented professionals, who with their study and hard work, can contribute to improve our society.
