UP Alumni Association (Singapore) Scholarship

The UP Alumni Association (Singapore) Scholarship is funded by the UP Alumni Association of Singapore. It is a non-stock, non-profit association organized in 2003 to bring together UP Alumni based across Singapore. The organization seeks to devote its efforts to the advancement of the UP Cause and Ideals as well as pioneer in the identification, conceptualization and implementation of projects for the benefit of the UP campus and the community at large.

 

The scholarship program aims to send one student a year to a full time 4 year undergraduate course in any campus of the University of the Philippines. Covering tuition and stipend, funding comes largely from donations and fund-raising activities among UPAAS members and friends.

 

The scholarship, duly administered by the Office of Scholarship and Student Services (OSSS), under the auspices of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, provides access to quality education to deserving students with limited financial means.

 

To ensure sustainability of the program, the endowment fund, which aims to support 4 students at any given time, is put in place. The scholarship program is UPAAS way, albeit small, in supporting the vital role that UP plays in the development of Philippine society and its contribution to sustainable poverty alleviation initiatives.

 

In the event the donor decides to discontinue the scholarship, the existing scholar shall be supported until graduation or unless disqualified from the grant for failure to meet the terms for the renewal of the grant. The Office of Scholarship and Student Services shall administer the scholarship grant.
