Private School Scholarship Program (PSP)

Public schools in Nicaragua are increasingly weak and in some cases dangerous, especially for girls.  UPNicaragua's high school scholarship program allows girls to attend better schools allowing them to prepare for a better future and providing safer environments.

This monthly fee helps families pay for:

  • Tuition
  • School Books

Web Development & Coding Program (TECH)

This is UPNicaragua in partnership with Fullbright engineers going beyond basic education.  We believe that basic education is a must, yet not enough to secure a safe future for today's children. 

This is a challenging 9-month program that allows motivated girls to explore introduction to the following areas: basic computer science concepts, HTML & CSS, Javascript and exposure to robotics and digital fabrication.

Monthly TECH Scholarship cost per child: USD $30

This monthly fee covers:

  • Professional instruction of coding course (4 hours per week)
