The Ben & Lois Paul Scholarship Program

This program was created in memory of Benjamin and Lois Paul to honor their more than 50 years of social science research centered in San Pedro la Laguna.

The Pauls were so beloved by the Tz’utujil Maya of San Pedro that they named the community school in their honor.

Our scholarships reach out to the area behind the mountains of San Pedro to provide support for Tz’utujil young people of Chicacao and San Miguel Panan in Suchitepéquez to attend school in San Pedro and elsewhere.

Our challenge is to work in collaboration with our contributors and other organizations and to find the funds necessary to make these dreams of education a reality.

Your donation of $200 a month supports a Maya student at university level.
