Every year, the House of Panama awards scholarships up to $1,000 to one High School graduate residing in the United States pursuing 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 a 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.
