A very heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who has supported the IFOB Scholars program in 2011. The IFOB Scholarship Committee had a very difficult task choosing from nearly 50 exceptional Belizean youth who applied this year. The 2011-2012 IFOB Scholars Program finalists are:
Andreina Coyock, Yo Creek (Muffles College)
Lyannie Puc, San Jose Succotz (Sacred Heart College)
Omar Nicolas, Orange Walk, (Muffles College)
Silvia Guevara, San Ignacio (Sacred Heart College)
Saskia Ponce, Orange Walk, (Orange Walk Technical)
In addition to the new scholarships, IFOB is pleased to announce that six current IFOB Scholars received renewals of their scholarships for the 2011-2012 school year due to their excellent performance:
Lilly Aldana, Caye Caulker, (Ocean Academy)
Martha Briceño, San Ignacio (Sacred Heart College)
Ashley Morey, Benque Viejo, (Mopan Technical)
Mercedes Requena, Caye Caulker, (Ocean Academy)
Marilena Torres, Santa Familia Village, (Sacred Heart College)
All awards are paid directly to the students’ school administrations and cover full or partial tuition, books, and uniforms only. Each student must maintain a good attendance record and at least a 2.0 grade point average to retain his or her scholarship.
