28 January 2022
Centro Escolar University School of Medical Technology student Angelica Jasmin Gallego is one of the 15 new grantees of the “2021 Handog ng Safeguard: Medtechs ng Kinabukasan” Scholarship Program by Safeguard Philippines in partnership with the Philippine Association of Medical Technologists, Inc. (PAMET).
“I applied for the scholarship mainly to provide financial support on my academic needs, as well as to help my parents on sustaining our educational expenses since I have three younger siblings who are also schooling, and my father is the only breadwinner in our family. Moreover, as a future Medical Technologist, I envision providing help to those who need it most, especially those residing in remote areas with inaccessible healthcare services, while collaborating with my fellow future MedTechs in enhancing the quality of life”, shared the sophomore college student.
After complying with the requirements and undergoing written examination and interview, Angelica emerged to be one of the deserving students among over 500 aspirants. Her scholarship grant includes full financial assistance on her tuition and miscellaneous fees, laboratory fees and she will even receive book allowance for a period of three years.
It was during her freshman year in CEU when she first heard of the Safeguard scholarship. Then last September 15, 2021, she attended the "PAMET Brigada EskweLab Series 2021" which was organized by PAMET as part of the Medical Technology week. The testimonies of the former Safeguard scholars in the said event inspired and encouraged her to apply.
To date, the financial educational support of the Handog ng Safeguard: MedTechs ng Kinabukasan Scholarship Program has changed the lives of over 300 students.
