The Republic Scholarship Program gives deserving Filipino students access to education and a chance to uplift their lives. It is our hope that the students will take this opportunity to pay it forward to their families and the community as a whole.
The education of the youth plays a central role in the development of communities.
Reinforcing its commitment to quality education for the youth of Teresa, Republic Cement welcomed a new batch of scholars consisting of 7 college students who are enrolled in different universities in Rizal and Metro Manila.
The financial assistance, funded by the company’s Social Development and Management Program (SDMP), covers tuition and allowances for college students who complied with the requirements and passed the qualifying exam and interview conducted by the Community Relations Department.
The new scholars, who belong to families from Republic Cement Teresa Plant’s host and neighboring communities, are only part of the company’s existing pool of college scholars. Currently, the Teresa Plant has 43 college scholars including four (4) BS Mining Engineering students enrolled at Adamson University. These four scholars enjoy full scholarships under the Development of Mining Technology and Geosciences (DMTG) component of the SDMP.
In 2015, the Teresa Plant organized the Republic Scholars and Alumni Association in order to encourage graduates and current scholars under SDMP to extend help to other underprivileged youth in Teresa through different community development programs and activities.
