In order to improve our selection process for new scholarship applicants, Liga MAC offered to the candidates to be examined by an independent academic institution. For this purpose, we partnered with Colegio del Valle, a local registered private school, to be the unbiased party to examine the kids. The test was based exclusively on the contents established by the public education system.
In addition, for the new school year, the applicants had to present a recommendation letter from their school teacher.
The main purpose of Liga MAC is still to support students in need; good students whose parents cannot afford all the expenses associated to advancing them to middle school and higher. Therefore, belonging to a low-income family, along with consistent grades at or above 8.5 remains as the first requirements to take a student applicant under our wing.
