Scholarship

Every year, the House of Panama awards scholarships up to a $1,000 to High School graduate(s) residing in the United States pursuing a higher education at the college of their choice. It is our goal that this scholarship will assist Panamanian parents in their efforts to guide their children in pursuing a college education. Recipients will also receive 1 year membership to the House of Panama.

Eligibility
To be eligible for the scholarship, the graduate(s) must be of Panamanian descent and must have been accepted to the college of their choice. Priority will be given to a candidate who has demonstrated a commitment to working with the Panamanian community.

Application Process

  2. A complete House of Panama Scholarship Application (Format: Google Docs) with accurate and complete information.

  3. An Essay no more than two (2) pages formatted in Times New Roman, size 11 font, 1” margins on all sides, and double-spaced.  The Essay should address the following questions:

    2. How will this scholarship help you give back to the Panamanian community?

  4. A copy of your unofficial transcripts, report card, and/or grades for last completed school semester/quarter.
