About us

Our Story

The GSP The Green Scholarship Program (Programa de Becas Green A.C.) was established in 2006 by Patricia and Arturo Pratt to honor Patricia’s parents, Doris and Milton Green of Knoxville, Tennessee. This foundation is intended to reflect the value of education, and its importance in the human life.

Our Goal

The goal of the GSP, a nonprofit 501- C organization, is to provide a four-year college scholarship for high school graduates of Los Cabos and surrounding areas. The GSP is an educational division of the Charity Development of Los Cabos (CDLC) in the United States. The GSP strives to select students who have exhibited perseverance and determination for academic excellence. Funding for the GSP is obtained from various sources.

The Green Scholarship Program is committed to “helping the students of Los Cabos achieve their dreams”. The program has a total of 126 students graduated from the top private and public local universities. The community of Los Cabos is facing a real important issue, the lack of good quality education and available financial aid for students who don’t have the means to get a college education. While the foundation is actively working on giving scholarships to some of these students, there is a higher need to make these efforts go even further.
