Fundación A. Jean Brugger has a new opportunity for sponsors in 2020! FAJB provides university scholarships to young people of the San Juan del Sur area. University is quite affordable in Nicaragua, yet the cost of a full scholarship is high enough that many people haven’t been able to experience the joy of helping a young person achieve their dream of a professional career.
In response, we have started a new tuition-only scholarship, for those students who will attend a university in Rivas. Now, for just $50 a month, you can help a young person become a nurse, or teacher, or accountant. And as a bonus be welcomed as a new member of your student’s family.

The construction of the new offices for Fundación A. Jean Brugger has begun. We are proud to say that 5 of our current or former scholarship students are part of this project. Engineer Aurora Perez is working for the contractor, MultiServicios, as assistant engineer. Henry Sevilla, who is close to graduation as a Civil Engineer, is doing his internship with MultiServicios. Engineer Luis Mendoza, Engineer Kenneth Avendaño, and Engineering student Jordan Marin form the Supervisory staff, who will assure that the procedures and materials match the construction plans. We feel that the skill these young people are bringing to the project is a mark of the success of the scholarship program and of the university system of Nicaragua. And it is a fulfillment of one part of the dream for this project, that our graduates would be part of making the dream a reality.
