Our Mission


The Maya Educational Foundation (MEF) supports programs dedicated to the educational and professional advancement of Maya people. 
FEPMaya university students, Guatemala, 2016

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.
MEF provides scholarships for 179 university students, 
240 middle and high-school students, and 41 elementary-school children.
