In the Philippines, the best way to change your life and your future is to get the best possible education you can get.
While getting a university degree is not as expensive in the Philippines compared to other countries, the cost is still considered prohibitive especially in a country where the minimum wage is still below PHP 500 in 2015.
For bright young students dreaming of a good college education, take advantage of existing scholarship programs issued by the government and the Private sector.
One of the organizations that continued to support the Filipino youth when it comes to achieving more in life is the Aboitiz Group. As one of the country’s leading business organizations, Aboitiz gives back to the country through various socio-civic undertakings.
One of these programs aim to help qualified college students continue and complete their studies through the Aboitiz College Scholarship Program (ACSP), which aims to support and inspire students to value, appreciate, and make the most of their education.
