To build “A better Guinea”, youth play a major role. Guinea Promise invests in the education of young, high potential Guineans because we believe that they are key in the stewardship and fulfillment of our vision.
“Les Elites De Demain” scholarship creates a supportive and merit based structure around high potential youth in financial need so that they have a shot at their dreams. Through this scholarship, Guinea Promise strives to begin a virtuous cycle in which successful Guineans empower other Guineans to create a generation of leaders that will shape the future of the country.
We provide scholarships to students in their final year of middle school through their high school graduation. Each of our scholarship recipients go through a rigorous application process and is carefully selected. We look for students with a rare combination of talent, outstanding academic or community service record, leadership, determination and purpose.
Each scholar receives financial, academic and social support, attends one of Guinea Promise’s partner schools, connects to a network of like minded grantees, and is given priority access to other Guinea Promise programs. To be named a “Les Elites De Demain” scholar is an outstanding accomplishment that will significantly impact the future of each recipient.
