Our Mission

The Maya Educational Foundation (MEF) supports programs dedicated to the educational and professional advancement of the Maya people.

How do we achieve this mission?
  • We work with our non-profit partner organizations to fund scholarships at the primary, secondary, and university levels for qualified Maya students from communities in Guatemala, Mexico, and Belize.
  • We support programs that increase educational access and professional opportunities for Maya groups from remote areas, particularly for women and girls, and for students dedicated to maintaining their Maya cultural heritage.
  • We support the Centro de Investigaciones Regionales de Mesoamérica (CIRMA), one of Central America's premier social science research centers and a resource in Guatemala for the conservation of historical records—textual and photographic—of the region.
