UPAA-MB extends university bursary project to the Philippines

Posted on by on April 10th, 2014 | Comments Off

In its efforts to give back as “Iskolar ng Bayan” [Scholars of the State], UPAA-MB, Inc. or the University of the Philippines Alumni and Associates in Manitoba, Inc. extends its bursary project to the Philippines.

This bursary which reflects the value the organization places on higher learning and community support, will have its first recipient in the Philippines: an underprivileged but deserving student of the University of the Philippines (UP) Tacloban campus.

UP Tacloban was severely damaged by Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda), the super typhoon which ravaged several cities and caused over 6,000 lost lives.

The recipient for this year’s bursary in the Philippines will undergo a screening and selection process by a UPAA-MB, Inc. Bursary committee in cooperation with UP Tacloban.

Flapjack Fundraiser

In line with this year’s bursary project in the Philippines, UPAA-MB, Inc. will hold The Flapjack Breakfast Fundraiser.

This is a campaign driven by ticket sales for a pancake and drink breakfast, a 50/50 draw, individual/corporate sponsorship, and door prizes to lucky attendees.

It will be held on June 28, 2014, Saturday, from 8-10am, at Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar, 1150 Grant Avenue, Winnipeg. Tickets cost $10.

Buy your tickets now and make a difference! You can also buy tickets at the door during the event.

For more information, inquiries, and ticket purchases, please email fundraising@upmb.net.
