Father "Pepito" Marrero
Bright Stars Scholarship

This fund is possible thanks to a partnership with Mr. Carlos M. Perdomo, an alumnus of the Class of 1983 at Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola, and Kinesis

Commemorates the legacy of Father "Pepito" Marrero, SJ, who was a helpful person to his religious community and the youth of Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola. His contribution to education and his kindness in serving others left significant impact in the lives of many.

The scholarship is exclusive to 5 students with financial limitations and academic excellence who study at Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola. This financial aid covers the participation fee of the Bright Stars program.

Participants must have a GPA of 3.75 or higher and commit to actively participating in the activities of the Bright Stars program.
