Education is Everything!
The long-term success of Hospitalito Atitlán depends on its permanent local professionals who speak the Maya languages. Continuing education is vital so that our staff can attain the professional medical and technical skills needed to grow and sustain our mission.
Underwriting a continuing education scholarship will make a huge difference in the professional lives of our staff and of the HA’s patients.
Each $3000 scholarship covers the expense of:
- Books and supplies
- Salary of a temporary replacement for one day/week
Consider providing a continuing education sponsorship for one of these specialties:
- Licensed Nurse
- Lab Technician
Currently a HA merit scholar needs financial support for a degree in chemical biology. This scholarship has been 60% secured, but we need additional donors, any amount will help assure he completes his studies during the next five years.
HA’s scholarship commission approves all scholarship recipients. If you want to nominate a Hospitalito employee for a continuing education sponsorship, contact us.
A continuing education scholarship is an excellent way for an individual, family, clinic, religious organization or civic group to help Hospitalito Atitlán maintain a high level of professionalism.
