Extending its support to the youth beyond collegiate sports, Akari recently gathered the 2018-2019 Adamson University scholars of the company. In an intimate dinner, Christopher Tiu, Akari CEO, reiterated the lighting and energy company’s commitment to help enlighten the future of the Filipino youth.
“Through the Lim Liok Lim and Carter Tiu scholarships, we aim to give back via tertiary scholarship grants. The immediate family members of our employees, as well as the nearest kin of the athletes of the company-sponsored school teams are our priority. We’re also open to providing scholarship grants to indigent but deserving individuals,” the lowkey executive said.
Scholars of the Akari Foundation can choose an engineering-related course under the Carter Tiu Scholarship; other specializations will fall under the Lim Liok Lim Scholarship. Aside from full tuition fee grant, scholars will also receive free textbooks and the opportunity to be hired by the top local lighting brand after earning their degree.
“The Akari Foundation scholars should take advantage of the quality of education they stand to receive from a top Philippine university. We are likewise happy to expand our partnership with Adamson University. We not only support the university’s athletic program in the UAAP; beyond that, we believe in the high-quality Vincentian education. It is our hope that in the future, our grantees will in turn give back by helping their respective families have a brighter and better life,” Tiu closed.
