Brains, ambition, and good study habits alone will not get a Belizean child into secondary school.  It also requires, on average, over $800 USD per student per year.  This is a formidable financial barrier to many Belizean families.

Over the past twelve years, your donations have enabled FBB to provide scholarships to 200 needy Belizean students.  Full Basket Belize scholarships pay for tuition, fees, books, and uniforms for these students.  Without scholarship funding, these promising scholars would not be able to attend high school.  They sincerely appreciate the support that our organization makes possible through your generous donations.  We — and they – sincerely thank you!!

Your support to the FBB  Scholars Program is making a meaningful investment in the future of Belize.

How the FBB Scholars Program Works

  • Every January we invite Belizean secondary schools to become “partner schools”. These schools help us identify future Form II, III, and IV students in need of Full Basket Belize scholarships. Each partner school agrees to help identify students in need of scholarships, disperse the students’ scholarship monies, send us periodic student grade reports, and submit year-end financial reports detailing how the funds were spent.
  • In February each partner school identifies up to five deserving students to complete the Full Basket Belize scholarship applications. These students must be entering Forms II, III, or IV in the upcoming academic year. Completed applications, along with grade transcripts and adult teacher recommendations, must be returned to us no later than the deadline specified on the application.
  • FBB Scholars are announced in April.  Funds are dispersed to the schools only after confirmation forms and contracts are received. Each student must maintain a good attendance record and at least a 3.0/80% grade point average to retain his or her scholarship. Students who have previously received a Full Basket Belize scholarship and are in good standing are eligible to apply for renewal scholarships.
