The BAUSA Scholarship Program
One of the Foundation’s major projects is the BAUSA Scholarship Program, in conjunction with the Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU). Each year, the Foundation grants scholarships to local students to attend the Bataan Peninsula State University. Currently, the Scholarship Program supports 12 students at BPSU, who are majoring in various fields such as nursing, computer science, engineering, accounting, and teaching.
Since 1994, 84 Students have graduated from the BAUSA Scholarship Program. To date, 100% of our graduates are employed, working both within the Bataan community and abroad. These graduates now have the ability to provide for their families and to contribute to the Philippine community at large.
Due to rising tuition costs, the Program is currently focused on increasing the amount of aid given to students and will be sponsoring full four-year scholarships for every BAUSA scholar, beginning in Fall of 2010.
