This year we will be awarding five scholarships to deserving student leaders of their communities: Cedie Bragat, Edrian Mendoza, Geraldine Valencia, Paul Ampaya, and Pauline Sanchez. The applicants were selected based on their leadership abilities, community service and academic records. Despite the many deserving candidates involved in our program, these five stood out as shining examples for their peers. In addition to filling out applications and getting accepted to very good schools, the applicants also had to undergo a rigorous interview process. We hope that by giving these give students scholarships, that in turn they will help their village. For the 2011-2012 school year, Cedie and Edrian will be attending first year high school in Don Bosco Mandaluyong, while Paul will be attending first year high school in LourdesSchool. Geraldine is matriculating in University of Manila while Pauline will pursue a teaching degree in the University of the East. Best of luck and congratulations to our first batch of scholars. May you continue to be leaders and role models to others.
Congratulations to the 1st batch of Dream Big Pilipinas Scholars
