A Scholarship from Downunder in Manila

I came across this fantastic opportunity for high school students who are about to graduate this year. Filipino families, in general, value college education a lot, and I mean a lot. I hear of stories where parents do whatever it takes just to get their kids to college. It is a dream for every parent to see their children graduate with a degree. 

Times are getting tougher though. Tuition fees have nowhere to go but up. So, when I came across this great news, I thought that I should share it with you guys. If you know someone who is graduating this year, and wanted to get a degree in Accounting, please tell them about this. Bonus points if they're a fan of Hugh Jackman (he's Australian, haha). It's a scholarship offer from the Australian Catholic University (ACU) Manila.

The deadline is fast approaching so hurry up! :-)

  1. nice info...thanks

  2. This is great! you know, my hubby finished college and med school on just scholarships? He came from a family with limited means, and without the scholarships, who knows if he would even have gone to med school!

    We really hope to do something like this for some of our kababayans someday. We value education a lot and try to instill this in our kids. :-)


I'd love to hear from you. xo
