UST fundraising for scholarship awards

The officers, headed by Reggie Santos, president and other members of the University of Santo Tomas Alumni Association in Manitoba, held a fundraising event recently at the Canad Inns.

The money raised will be for scholarship fund being initiated by the alumni association.

From its inception (1978) to 2008, the association awarded 76 shcolarships to Filipino youth who excelled in academics, sports, arts and theatre.

The association’s partnership with St. Paul College Foundation and the Winnipeg Foundation provides funding to the scholars chosen by the USTAAM Scholarship committee. The funds held at the St. Paul College Foundation are available to students entering the University of Manitoba while the funds at the Winnipeg Foundation will become available in the near future to all students who will pursue post secondary school education in other schools in Canada and to Filipino immigrants who want to upgrade their professions in Canada.
