FEED Scholars

FEED Scholars are selected from various academic institutions that have been approved as FEED Partners, including the following reputed Universities that deliver agro-forestry related sciences in the Philippines.

Memoranda of Agreements (MOAs) signed by both parties institutionalise the framework within which FEED is able to provide scholarship support to graduate and postgraduate students pursuing studies in Agronomy, Arts & Culture, Farming, Forestry, Fisheries, Information & Communication Technology, Livelihood Development, Renewable Energy, Social Enterprise, Sustainability and sciences/themes related  to the water, food and energy nexus identified in the Philippines:

FEED contributes primarily towards practical research carried out by scholars, especially in studies related direct interventions with tangible results and beneficial impacts on particularly marginalised communities and livelihood development opportunities, related to the water-food-energy nexus identified by various global agencies, and prevalent challenges adopted by the Philippine government,the public and private sectors.

As a conduit, by working with the private sector, FEED facilitates deserving Philippine students to access, pursue and complete their education and research targets, particularly for those deserving individuals who can neither afford nor have access to learning, including those situated in remote areas.

Congratulations to FEED Scholars! 

FEED  scholars to date have materialized their dreams of improving the livelihood of not only their families but have also inspired their local communities and those they continue to encounter, inspire them the same dreams and pursuits. We have since graduated:

  • a teacher who pursued her Ph.D in Education –  now Dean of her University
  • a dentist who passed the board exams – now gainfully employed as a senior dentist overseas, planning to transfer her knowledge then return home to set up her own practice
  • a  computer science student who – now advising Silicon Valley, who then set up his own company in the Philippines
  • a nursing student who was in her last year of school but whose sick and aging parents could no longer finance her final year of nursing studies; she has since graduated and paid for her ongoing review classes for the board exams and passed.

Slowly but surely, small steps in making education and research accessible will have a great impact on our crossroads towards progress. It is not a long shot; rather it is our one sure structural contribution towards change.
