Program Description

In March 2013, a multi-disciplinary coalition created the Colombian Education Fund (ColEF) to support the educational goals of students of Colombian origin. Currently, high school and college students of Colombian descent in New York City do not have access to scholarship funds, college readiness information, and mentoring opportunities that focus specifically on them. This coalition wants to address those specific needs in the Colombian community.

Mission:

Our mission is to support the higher education needs of students and their families by providing scholarships and assistance.

Vision:

Our vision is to provide scholarships in every continent to students of Colombian origin and become a premium Colombian think-tank in the United States and abroad.
