Huawei, global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider and (DLSU) announced the first batch of Huawei Scholars for 2021 through a virtual ceremony. The three scholars are Patrick Lawrence Simpao, Christian Justin Yu, and Christian Michael Tan, all fourth-year students of DLSU taking up BS Information Technology and BS Electronics and Communication Engineering.
Br. Bernard Oca FSC, president of De La Salle University, said that the partnership continues to amplify the Lasallian battlecry of teaching minds, touching hearts, and transforming lives. “To Huawei Philippines Technologies Inc., you help transform the lives of our future innovators, engineers, scientists, and leaders.”
The scholarship is made possible because of the Huawei Tech4all program. Huawei believes that no one should be left behind in this digital world that is why it launched Tech4all, a long-term digital inclusion initiative. Huawei scholarship is aimed to provide financial assistance to deserving students who are already in their 3rd to 5th year College Level to assist them financially.
“We appreciate the partnership with DLSU and we share in DLSU’s mission of lifelong pursuit of wisdom, knowledge, and faith. We hope that with this scholarship grant, we can ease the financial worries of the students so they can focus on finishing their studies, to graduate and hopefully contribute to their future success” said Peter Zhang, HR director, Huawei Philippines.
Huawei scholarship is on a pilot run with five of the top universities in the Philippines sponsoring 19 scholars for 2021.
