“I believe in out-giving what I receive, and that giving multiplies itself through people.On my first year in Ateneo, I helped a close friend overcome his suicidal tendencies during my Math 18 midterms.On my second year, I led projects that built houses for the homeless through Habitat for Humanity. On my third year, I led volunteers to pack thousands of relief goods for typhoon victims. On my senior year, I memorized 700 students’ names to personally make them feel that they are part of our organization, MEA. I did all these because I received great love from God, through my parents and friends, and especially through FAME. None of these would’ve happened if it weren’t for ME Batch ‘87, who gave me an Ateneo scholarship through FAME. The impact of this scholarship went beyond my college years. Now, on my first year working at P&G Philippines, I’ve already supported my nephew’s education for one full year. My FAME scholarship was intended for me, a single student. But I guess that makes two scholars for the price of one.”
The FAME scholarship fund officially kicked off in the ME@40 grand homecoming last 2009. With the generosity of its alumni, the organization has already been able to support a significant number of scholars. As ME celebrates its 53rd year this 2022, FAME aims to stay true to its mission of contributing to society by supporting more ME scholars.
