For the last five years we have established a series of economic grants or contributions (becas) for Elementary School students in the Province of Colon. We intend to expand this effort to other provinces in, the Republic of Panama. As we are proud of the duality of our Panamanian and American heritage and rich culture, we recognized the pressing need for an effort to provide academic and financial assistance to various poverty-stricken provinces in Panama.   Accordingly, we are pleased to announce the launch of our latest effort to establish a series of economic grants or contributions (becas) for Elementary School students, initially, in the Province of Colon. 

We say, initially, because we intend to expand this effort to other provinces in the Republic of Panama as we seek to expand the number of elementary schools supported by the PANAM Academic Network (PANAM Network).

PanAm Academic Network Inc. Objectives:
– Provide economic and other assistance to Panamanian students seeking achievement but limited by resource constraints.
– Provide educational tools and supplies to Panamanian schools and students in need.
– Support training and other related programs to Panamanian students, schools and teachers in an effort to promote educational excellence.

Jorge Brathwaite President of PANAM Network notes three key ideas that he would like students to think about and embrace. These three ideas are the “THREE Is”
