With a population of over 6 million people, Nicaragua is the largest country in the Central-American isthmus. Over the last 25 years, the country has been experiencing sustained economic growth and political stability. There are over a dozen bilingual high schools in Nicaragua, home to more than 1,200 juniors and seniors, plus an additional 150 from non-bilingual schools who often exemplify top-notch academic performance to excel at rigorous institutions.

The College Institute (TCI) is a center for pre-collegiate mentorship that supports Nicaraguan students to attend colleges & universities in the United States and other countries. TCI helps its students align their professional interests to colleges that match their unique profile and preferences and connects its students with internships and job opportunities upon their return to Nicaragua. In addition to helping them find the right college, TCI prepares its fellows to adopt healthy life habits and establish a clear vision of their life goals. TCI invites universities to connect with Nicaraguan students in person or videoconferencing, but does not accept referral fees from any college or university.
