Foundation Escalera

Foundation Escalera

Since its founding in 2000 Foundation Escalera's scholarship program has made it possible for promising students to attend Benemerito de las Americas, an excellent high school in Mexico City. Most of our scholarship recipients come from the poorest regions of Mexico. The small income of their families do not provide the necessary means to pay school tuition. Were it not for Foundation Escalera's help, many of these students would not receive a high school education.

How We Help

Willow Canyon is proud to supply 25% of Foundation Escalera scholarships for rural students. This includes full tuition scholarships as well as smaller supplemental scholarships, depending on the needs of the student. Several members of our foundation have traveled to Mexico to assist in school construction, participate in service projects and to meet the students and their families in person. While there, we met some exceptional students that had completed high school, and we are now helping them to attend a local university. We believe that their hard work and success will be an inspiration to their village. Our involvement with Escalera has been incredibly rewarding and we plan to continue our work with them in the future.
