Rainforest Scholars

It  is clear from the letters of appreciation that AlliancExchange has received from each student how important the scholarships are to each student’s welfare and how appreciative they are to have the resources made available to them. Through our work and the donations we receive, AlliancExchange is committed to continuing this support.
