Gift of Education & Sports

Empowering the Future

Introducing Gift of Sports and Gift of Education


At Paseo Herencia, we are excited to unveil two transformative initiatives that aim to shape the lives of young local talents and nurture their dreams – the Gift of Sports and the Gift of Education programs. As a community-driven organization, we believe in harnessing the potential of our youth and empowering them to reach new heights in sports and academics.

Gift of Education – Education is a gift no one can take away

For over 8 years, we have remained steadfast in our dedication to nurturing young minds through the Gift of Education program, a longstanding initiative that began in 2015. We recognize the critical role that quality education plays in shaping the future of our youth and society as a whole. Many talented students possess the drive and potential to excel academically, but they may face financial barriers that hinder their progress.

The Gift of Education program seeks to address this concern by providing financial assistance to talented students, helping to cover their school expenses. By easing the financial burdens, we aim to empower these young minds to focus on their studies and unleash their full potential. Our vision is to create a pathway for these scholars to flourish academically, achieve their academic aspirations, and become the next generation of leaders and innovators.

How to Apply

Interested students are invited to submit:

  • A motivational letter outlining their academic ambitions and aspirations. The letter should express their passion for learning, their commitment to excellence, and how this support will positively impact their educational journey.
  • A copy of the student’s latest report card, as it provides valuable insight into their dedication to their studies.
  • Must submit the completed PDF form below with their personal details, including educational background and family financial details.

Send us these documents via email at marketing@paseoherencia.com or pass by our office to pick up the application form.
