We continuously commit in helping people who are less in life but great in talent, and through our company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) endeavors like this scholarship we hope these students make the most of this opportunity to excel,” said Tan Eng Hwa.

The scholars are: Francis Vincent Birung, Ana Marie Dapo, Yevgeny Espeña, Neriel Madriaga, Alexis Mojica, Fernan Navarette, Franz Joseph Pavo, Juan Carlo Robles, John Patrick Sta.
