About Us

The Guatemalan Student Support Group (GSSG) is a small non-profit started in 2003 and headquartered in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. Its purpose is to identify promising Guatemalan students and offer them scholarships to college, and, in some cases, high school. At present, GSSG students are obtaining college degrees in such fields as Business, Nursing, Education, Medicine, Law, and Environmental Science.​
