Security Bank Foundation renews scholarship commitment for Chiang Kai Shek students

Security Bank Foundation Inc. (SBFI) renewed its partnership with Chiang Kai Shek College in line with its advocacy to promote access to quality education. The partnership enables SBFI to provide college scholarships to underprivileged students taking up accountancy, business management, computer and information technology courses in Chiang Kai Shek.

A signing ceremony was held between the two institutions last August 14, 2019 at Security Bank Centre in Makati City.

“We focused our advocacy on education because we believe that education is the greatest equalizer in life. Education will give every person the opportunity to succeed, no matter what his or her social and economic background may be,” said Mr. Rafael Simpao, Jr., Chairman of Security Bank Foundation.

“On behalf of the faculty and students of Chiang Kai Shek College, I would like to thank Security Bank for sharing with us the belief that access to tertiary education is critical to the advancement of society and the welfare of the individual. I hope that our partnership will continue to grow, and that the recipients of this scholarship will go on to become productive citizens of the future,” added Dr. Dory Poa, President of Chiang Kai Shek College.

For School Year 2019-2020, Security Bank Foundation has provided educational assistance to 407 scholars nationwide, which is a 24% increase from the total number of beneficiaries last school year.
