Living Expenses Scholarship 2019/2020

The Garcia Family Foundation – GFF – for Art, Culture and Education is a US-based charitable foundation.

Central to GFF’s  mission is a strong  belief that education should be accessible to everyone, because it is the key ingredient to success in this world.

GFF understands that affordability is a major hurdle to a first class education, and that no one should have to give up his or her education because of the amount of the tuition or the costs of living.

GFF whishes to concentrate its help on living expenses as many universities or other foundation provide already scholarship for tuition. Therefore, in 2019, GFF  will begin granting three (3) six thousand dollar ($6,000) living expenses scholarship to eligible students who have been accepted at competitive United States universities and who need assistance in defraying their living expenses.
