THE UNIVERSITY is offering four new scholarships for needy yet deserving students this school year.

The four new scholarships, according to Dr. Ramon Sin, Assistant to the Rector for External Affairs, are: the Antonio Jimenez Scholarship, the Eugenio Juan Regalado Gonzales Scholarship, the UST High School Foundation, and the Alexander Lacson, Jr. Memorial Foundation.

Named after an alumnus from the College of Architecture and Fine Arts, the Antonio Jimenez scholarship has an initial endowment of $25,000. The scholarship is applicable to any four-year course in the University, as long as the student hails from Jimenez’ hometown, Lubao, Pampanga.

On the other hand, the Eugenio Juan Regalado Gonzales Scholarship, named after Juan Regalado Gonzales, is a gift from his children during the College of Architecture Alumni homecoming last December. The scholarship is offered to Architecture students only.

The UST High School Alumni Association, headed by former Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) president Alice Reyes, was able to raise P1.5 million for a scholarship fund. The fund is good for four new scholars.

On the other hand, the Alexander Lacson Jr. Memorial Foundation Scholarship is intended for sophomore Fine Arts students who are majoring in Interior Design.

According to Sin, it cannot be availed by first year students since they have a tendency to shift from one major to another.

On the other hand, the Faculty of Pharmacy established a new Professorial chair to promote the different researches, studies, and scholarly papers of the faculty members.

Fr. Maximilliano Rebollo O.P. serves as the chairholder of the said Professorial chair.

More than just a string

Meanwhile, the UST External Affairs office is planning to launch a website to effectively disseminate information about the different scholarship grants. Karen M. Peña
