TWENTY-FIVE scholarship grantees of Dualtech Scholarship Program of the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson and Buglas Foundation, Inc. at the Governor’s Office.
The scholars belong to the Batch 4 who will be studying a two-year Electromechanics Technology course at Dualtech Training Center Foundation, Inc. in Laguna; they will leave for Laguna next month.
Buglas Foundation, Inc., the Bacolod-based partner organization of Dualtech, was represented by Roger Sarmiento during the agreement signing.
The Negros Occidental Scholarship Program (NOSP) headed by Karen Dinsay facilitated the scholarship program and conducted the screening of applicants.
Through the scholarship program, the provincial government aims to produce high-quality electromechanics technicians for industrial complexes in Negros Occidental and for other parts of the country.
Gov. Lacson advised the scholars to be disciplined and determined in finishing their course so they could be employed after graduation and improve the quality of life of their families.
“The previous batches have shown dedication and industry in their studies and I hope your batch will also live up to the expectations of every Negrense scholar,” he said.
Dualtech, which has 140 partner companies, has produced more than 12,000 graduates since 1982. They guarantee 98 percent employment within a year after graduation.
