The Aboitiz Legal Scholarship Program for Excellence was established by the Legal and Corporate Services Department of Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc. (AEV), in coordination with the Aboitiz Foundation and the University of the Philippines – College of Law, with a firm belief that the youth are the future leaders and movers of the country. In this regard, the Legal Team has created a scholarship designed to mold law students into professionals with a passion for corporate social responsibility and steeped in the culture of sustainability and good governance.
The scholarship is currently open to students of the UP College of Law from 2nd to 4th year for the regular program, or 2nd to 5th year for those enrolled in the evening program. Grantees of the scholarship will receive financial assistance to defray tuition, books and miscellaneous expenses. The scholarship is renewable every semester for as long as the student makes normal progress toward a degree and willing to undergo a paid internship for at least one (1) summer with the Legal and Corporate Services Department.
