The increase in the number of students is linked to a greater dissemination of portuguese culture and to the interest of the third generation students.
The Portuguese Education Foundation will give 62 scholarships during its organization’s 27th Annual Banquet in Turlock, California, to “encourage lusodescendants to continue their education and reach a higher level.”
According to data from the Luso-American Education Foundation, the number of Portuguese students increased by 18% in the academic year 2018/2019 and several new courses were opened, including a Portuguese language teaching program in two secondary schools in Ceres, Stanislaus County.
