In 1996, the Mas family established a scholarship whose purpose is to advance the education of talented young Cuban and Cuban American men and women, furthering their commitment to promoting the benefits and opportunities that can be garnered through hard work in a free society. Since its establishment, over 160 students have been able to obtain a college education thanks to the Mas Family Scholarship, making it the largest scholarship program for students of Cuban descent. Many of these students have gone on to become leaders in their respective communities, reflecting the potential of what individuals can achieve given the freedom and opportunity to do so. The Mas Family Scholarships are an initiative of the Jorge Mas Canosa Freedom Foundation, whose mission is the advancement and preservation of Jorge Mas Canosa’s legacy: love of God, family and homeland; the dignity of human life; the ideals of freedom and democracy; and the education of future generations in the appreciation of these ideals.
