The Aboitiz Group continues to invest in the country’s next generation of leaders as another 17 deserving college students from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao were awarded the AEV scholarship for the incoming school year.
The fresh batch of selected college students, eligible for the Aboitiz College Scholarship Program (ACSP), received their academic scholarships last May 30 in Manila and June 6 in Cebu. They were chosen from over 300 applicants nationwide according to AEV Chief HR Officer Txabi Aboitiz.
Ten scholars came from Luzon, while seven are from Visayas and Mindanao. Currently, AEV supports 51 active scholars at various levels in their respective undergraduate fields of study such as Accountancy, Engineering, Business, IT and Social Sciences.
“As a company, it has been our long-standing tradition and philosophy to invest in the talented Filipino youth. It is our great hope that our latest batch of scholars will exceed our expectations and make us even prouder,” Txabi Aboitiz said.
Under the ACSP, students undergo a holistic learning experience as they are also able to participate in the company’s Summer OJT (On-The-Job Training) Program, the RAFI Kool Adventure Camp, the annual Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit, and take part in various company activities.
