FMC Research Solutions Inc., a company that is mainly into high-security document projects, established a scholarship program to support a third-year Chemical Engineering student, a first-year Juris Doctor student, and a level-III Medicine student of UP until they graduate.
The memorandum of agreement for the scholarship was signed by the company’s president, Fai Chua, and UP President Danilo Concepcion on August 2, 2017 at Quezon Hall, UP Diliman. The company’s chief technical officer, David Gus Adis, and UP Diliman Office of Scholarships and Student Services Officer in Charge Niel Kenneth Jamandre signed as witnesses.
Chua, a graduate of MS Industrial Engineering of UP Diliman in 2000, said, “I have high faith in UP students. We need to bring in more potentials in the field of science, because science expands into development. We want good lawyers with conviction and principles in government.”
The scholarship, which amounts to P60,000 per semester per student, will begin this semester. It is renewable until the scholar graduates. “As Christian entrepreneurs we feel we have to extend our blessings to others. . . . But we want to be more involved. To sustain the scholarship until graduation, that is the positive burden we want,” Chua added.
Previously the company donated equipment and renovation to a UP Diliman Department of Mining Metallurgical and Materials Engineering laboratory.
According to its website, FMC Research Solutions Inc. is known for its one-stop shop approach to business, “offering consultancy, financing, technology, and experience all in one place, including products ranging from printing, IT services, anti-forgery, anti-counterfeiting, and anti-tampering solutions.”
Adis earned his BS Metallurgical Engineering in 1999, also in UP Diliman. (Jo. Lontoc, UP MPRO)
