to do good.
We believe that the best way to break cycles of poverty in Honduras is through education. We are focused on training up the next generation of leaders in Honduras. Our High School and College Scholarship Projects advocate further education for students that have graduated from a primary institution.
Just One Scholarships Include:
• Registration Fees
• Monthly Tuition Payments
• School Supplies
• Educational School Trips
• Medical and Dental Benefits
Scholars are selected based upon those with the greatest socioeconomic needs. We also look for students that have a strong desire for higher education, commitment to bettering their families, and future plans to remain in Honduras.
We believe in hand-ups and not hand-outs at Just One. In order to receive the scholarship, scholars must maintain an average grade of 80% per quarter in all their classes. Students are also required to attend weekly Bible studies, participate in after school programs, and complete a set number of community service hours in their villages throughout the school year.
Just One believes that it is important for parents to have a part in their child’s education. The scholarship requires parents to pay a minimum of $8 monthly to a fund dedicated to their scholars' future educational needs. This money is available to the scholars after high school graduation.
“I want to be an example to my younger siblings and those around me. I want to encourage them to keep moving forward, to keep studying. I know that with Just One and God’s help, I’ll be able to achieve my goals and obtain a better future for me and my family.”

Donors have the opportunity to be directly involved in scholars' education through our Sponsor a Scholar Program.
In this program, donors are paired with a scholar for their high school or college career. By setting up a monthly donation, you can help send a Just One Scholar to school in Honduras.
