Medical and Nursing Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of the US-based Foundation for the Development of People (FDP), SOL International Foundation is proud to announce that we are working closely with Clinica Esperanza to identify qualified applicants and administer scholarships for both medical and nursing school. The island of Roatan is in desperate need of properly trained health-care professionals, and FAP has agreed to help!
In 2011, the first medical scholarship was awarded to a young man from Roatan who now has the opportunity to study in Tegucigalpa for 6 years to earn his medical degree. We are also administering nursing scholarships to 2 young ladies who are studying right here on Roatan. For every 2 years of scholarship that these candidates receive, they must commit 1 year of service in Roatan and they will also contribute financially back into the scholarship fund. This will ensure that this amazing opportunity will continue to be available for years to come!
Many thanks to The Foundation for the Development of People for their commitment to this cause! We would like to see this program expand in 2012. To find out how you can help contribute to this program, email us for more information.
