BU AEMCFI to support 5 deserving BUeños

January 9, 2024

After signing a successful Memorandum of Agreement between Bicol University and BU Alumni Endowment Management Council on Foundations, Inc. (AEMCFI), the latter party is set to launch an endowment project to financially support deserving BUeños. 

Every semester, BU AEMCFI will provide ₱60,000 to five BUeños at ₱3,000 per month for four months. Through the Office of Student Affairs and Services (OSAS) Grants-in-Aid program, the student beneficiaries should meet the criteria set by OSAS to qualify as grantees, and their academic progress will be monitored and reported to the foundation. 

This initiative would not be possible without the Foundation’s management, undersigned by its Board of Directors – Dr. Nora Licup, Dr. Flor Jenkin, Dr. Obdulia Rojas, and Dr. Fay Lea Patria M. Lauraya. 

It can also be recalled that in September 2020, BU AEMCFI donated 40 smart tablets to select BUeños to help with their flexible learning education. 

Dr. Fay Lea Patria M. Lauraya is the 7th BU President and the current President of University of Nueva Caceres in Naga City. Dr. Licup, Dr. Jenkin, and Dr. Rojas are retired BU faculty who held various top level administrative posts under Pres. Lauraya’s term. | by Arnold C. Noda, MPS I-CPRO
