8 UP-Manila students get PRC scholarship

MANILA, Philippines — Eight students of the University of the Philippines College of Medicine (UPCM) in Manila are the recipients of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC)’s medical scholarship program.

The program provides educational support to financially challenged students and aims to strengthen the country’s healthcare system, the PRC said.

The scholarship grant includes tuition, student and laboratory fees, miscellaneous fees as well as living allowances for UP’s Doctor of Medicine-Master of Public Health double degree program.

UPCM dean Charlotte Chiong and PRC chairman Richard Gordon signed the memorandum of agreement yesterday.

The eight new PRC scholars are Pauline Angela Abu, Charmaine Khaye Alba, Ceidy Joyce Balubal, Czariss Dale Grace Bedoya, Haggai Elisha Facon, Mary Hazel Florita, Rona Angela Grindulo and Wade Montgomery Rosales.

The Philippines has a shortage of medical doctors.
