Scholarship Offers for Pathways Students

Dear Friends,

We are even happier to announce that out of the 16 Pathways studentswho passed Ateneo, 5 were generously given full scholarships alreadywhile 2 are awaiting scholarship results by Ateneo's Office ofAdmission & Aid.

This brings the total number of Pathways students in the Ateneo to 26.

When we started five years ago, three students entered the Ateneo. Twohave graduated - Francis Alcausin (BS Math 2007) now works in DeutscheBank while Kim Cholo Torres (BS DS 2007) is a Research Assistant atour very own VP for Loyola Schools' office. The third student, ArchieDolit is graduating this March with a degree in BS ECE.

Since then, we have been able to bridge 23 others, including our veryfirst Payatas student here. Herbel Santiago is now a well-adjustedsophomore student taking up English Literature.

All these students would not have been able to enjoy an Ateneoeducation were it not for the support of our entire Ateneo community.

We are very grateful to:

- the Office of Admission & Aid, for their generosity, understanding andthe emotional support they give to all our scholars;

- All the faculty volunteers, administrators and staff who share theirtime, talent and resources;

- The college students who passionately dedicate their time and talentto mentoring our participants;

- And the rest of the community for the encouragement you send our way andthrough the funds you raise through the Piso Para Kay Isko campaign and our other activities!

In our experience, it has really taken an entire "village" to raise a child. =)
From all of us here at Pathways - thank you, thank you very much!

More updates to come in the coming weeks!
