The Access Program Bears Fruit

Seventy students had or will have the opportunity to learn English thanks to the English Access Microscholarship program sponsored by the U.S. Embassy.

After a two-year intensive English program, 40 students will finally graduate with an advanced intermediate level of English proficiency.

As the forty students say goodbye to the Access program, we welcome 30 new students who will also have the opportunity to study English for the next two years in addition to developing soft skills through NGO Youth 360.

The U.S. Embassy supports in this way the Alliance for Bilingualism Initiative (ABI) implemented at high school Cotepecos and at technical high schools in Escazú, Hatillo, Pavas, La Carpio, Purral and San Sebastián.

The U.S. Embassy has sponsored the English Access Microscholarship program in Costa Rica since October 2009. To date, 1,200 students have benefitted from this initiative, learning English at the Binational Center, the Technological Foundation (Fundatec) and/or the National University.
