At least 200 Filipinos who have been recently terminated and on a no-work-no-pay arrangement due to Covid-19 have received free of cost scholarship from the Filipino Institute.
The ‘Babangon Tayo Scholarship’ was launched on June 16 in an effort to offer free scholarship to Filipinos abroad who have been terminated and have no work due to Covid-19.
According to Mr. Gabriel John Rimando, Filipino Institute Founder and President, and Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of The Global Filipino Magazine, the scholarship program was also launched because not everyone did not receive the free meals from the ‘Tulong ng Filipino Institute’ recently.
These 200 Filipinos will be part of the third batch of Filipino Institute’s online classes.
“What’s good about this is that all of these FI scholars will be able to use what they will learn from FI as they search for new jobs,” Rimando said.
The scholars have chosen different courses. Most of them are residing in Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Oman, Kuwait and Philippines.
The application for scholarship is still open, to register please click this link.
