The scholarships were presented in March at the bishopric of Maldonado.
The Diocesan Bishop, Rodolfo Wirtz, several of the volunteers who work at Project Student Support and the youths and their families attended.
This year thirty-five scholarships were awarded, twenty-four were full scholarships, meaning that they include school supplies, a uniform, shoes, tutoring and psychological help. The other scholarships were partial, only school supplies, a uniform or shoes were provided. The partial scholarships also include academic tutoring and psychological help.
