About us

Kinesis is a 501 C3 non-profit educational foundation established in 2004 by José Enrique Fernández and his family. Our goal is to identify talented students with financial needs, prepare them to enter the best universities in the United States and Puerto Rico, support them in their college years, and help them ensure a prosperous professional career in Puerto Rico. 

Since its inception, Kinesis has contributed over $ 11.5 million in scholarships, thus eliminating financial barriers for talented youth in Puerto Rico. The scholarships are awarded thanks to Kinesis’ endowment fund, friends and donors of the foundation, fundraising, and services to the general public. 

At Kinesis, we create the environment necessary for students to succeed, regardless of their socio-economic background, from high school to their entry into the professional world. 


Our mission is to provide talented Puerto Rican students with the necessary resources to overcome social and economic limitations, achieve an education at the highest level, and return to the island to help develop Puerto Rico.


We envision a socially and economically progressive Puerto Rico, driven by excellence in education, without social or economic barriers.

I’m the first in my family to go to college. At Kinesis, I learned that there are no limits or barriers when working for a dream. My own story shows that it can be done if you trust yourself.
