PUP FORGES PARTNERSHIPS WITH VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS
THE POLYTECHNIC University of the Philippines has forged collaborations with various organizations for scholarships and student support.
Eight new benefactors signed agreements with the university, including ZTE Philippines, Inc.; Villaruz and Villaruz and Company, and Torre, Sobremonte and Associates Company and Vestas Foundation.
Individual benefactors include Engr. Eduardo S. Albaran II, Luisa Caleon, Catherine Sotto and Dean Sylvia Sarmiento.
“Since 2011, the QCRB Foundation has supported 95 underprivileged, academically deserving students through financial assistance, while also instilling among our scholars the value of paying-it-forward,” said Cynthia Camacho, a representative of the University’s longest-running partner, the Quezon City Realty Board Foundation, Inc.
“We hope to continue this great opportunity to help poor students get quality education and go on to work their way out of poverty and improve their quality of life,” she added.
The partnership with QCRBFI was renewed last October 24.
Vice President for Student Affairs and Services Tom Testor thanked the benefactors and hoped “for more kind hearts” to support the university’s cause for quality education.
