Alumni create a generous new scholarship fund to support next generation of UP Law students
This January 23, 2020, the UP College of Law welcomed class 1993 alumni and friends back to University of the Philippines at its BGC campus during the launch of the UP LAE (Law Admissions Exam) Roadshow. Along with opportunities to reconnect and network, the event also marked the launch of a unique group fundraising effort: the creation of UP Law Class of 1993 Alumni Scholarship Fund through the UPLAF (UP Law Alumni Foundation). A collective effort by numerous 1993 alumni, the endowed scholarship will support Law School students through financial aid.
“The UP LAE Roadshow, which was organized this year for prospective students in regions around the Philippines, is also the ideal time to launch this effort,” said Dean Fides Cordero Tan. “We have been thrilled by the generous response and the momentum that continues to build. We are proud that this fund will extend opportunities to so many students.”
Atty. Charlie Yalung and the class of 1993 expressed the hope that the scholarship would encourage engagement between alumni and the UP College of Law, and that the endowment would help to identify and support future leaders mentored in “the grand manner”.
