Full Basket Belize begins annual scholarship search


Portland, Oregon USA
January 23, 2014

Misc_Logos_FBBFull Basket Belize has begun its annual process of looking for deserving secondary students to receive scholarships for the 2014-2015 academic year. Each scholarship is worth up to $1,000 BZ and covers tuition, books, fees, and uniforms.
The first step in this process is for interested Belizean secondary schools to apply to be “participating schools.” This involves a school representative completing a short online Participating Schools Form found at and agreeing to abide by the conditions required by Full Basket Belize in processing its scholarships.
Once a school has completed and submitted the Participating Schools Form, Full Basket Belize will send the school a scholarship application to photocopy and hand out to students who they feel are in great need of a scholarship. The organization is looking for outstanding students who demonstrate financial need, represent their schools positively, do well academically, and participate actively in their communities.
It is hoped that all secondary schools will provide their students with the opportunity to qualify for $1,000 BZ scholarships to help them continue their educations and take the first step by completing an online Participating Schools Form application no later than February 21, 2014.
If you have any questions regarding the Participating Schools Form application process, please e-mail [email protected] or [email protected].
