SCHOLARS of Sun Life Financial Philippines Foundation Inc. recently enjoyed bonding with their Sun Life family in a reunion organized by the company.

The 36 scholars under Sun Life Foundation’s wing, who are enrolled in different universities including the University of the Philippines Diliman, University of San Carlos (USC) in Cebu City, Central Mindanao University and Mindanao State University–Iligan spent a full day with the company’s top executives last Nov. 23.

They were given the opportunity to explore The Mind Museum, which is the foundation’s partner organization, and participated in “SunPiology,” the company’s annual fun run.

In keeping with Sun Life’s advocacy of promoting financial literacy, a personal financial planning session was conducted to equip the scholars with essential knowledge in their journey towards financial security.

“We want our scholars to know that they are a part of the Sun Life family and we are here to support them all the way,” said Sun Life Foundation Inc. executive director Joub Miradora.

For their part, the scholars were happy to know the people behind their scholarships as well as their fellow scholars.

“I really enjoyed bonding with the Sun Life family and the experience was more than I hoped for,” shared Kimberly Lucero, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from USC with the help of Sun Life. She is now pursuing medicine studies.

Sun Life offers scholarships to underprivileged but deserving students studying critical courses, like mathematics, statistics, biology, agriculture and chemistry in their home provinces. Apart from receiving assistance in their tuition and fees, the students are also granted book allowance and a monthly stipend.

The company’s scholarship program is set to expand next year, with plans to add more slots and partner universities, especially in Visayas and Mindanao.

Sun Life Financial is represented in the Philippines by its life insurance arm, Sun Life of Canada (Philippines) Inc. (SLOCPI); its mutual fund manager, Sun Life Asset Management Company Inc.; and its pre-need company, Sun Life Financial Plans Inc.

The foundation Inc. is the philanthropy arm of SLOCPI.
