PrimeBMD has awarded the Dare to Dream Scholarship grant to its second Mapúan scholar for school year 2019 to 2020.
Carmie Evangelista, our new scholar, has officially signed the Scholar’s Agreement with PrimeBMD CEO Jeff Gallus, PrimeBMD Head of Human Resources Ivan Santamaria, and Mapúa University President Dr. Reynaldo Vea, on October 16, 2019, at the Bayleaf Intramuros. Joined by the Dean of Admissions and Scholarships, Dr. Dionisia Lanuza, they celebrated this momentous event through a hearty lunch by 9 Spoons restaurant.
Carmie is currently on her fourth year as student of Mapúa University, taking up a double degree in BS Civil Engineering and BS Environmental and Sanitary Engineering. She had also been with us at PrimeBMD as an Undergraduate Placement Trainee with the Pre-Contracts Team since late 2018. Throughout the trainee program, Carmie showed her admirable work ethic and her drive to learn and always perform well under time constraints.
“Receiving this scholarship has surely been the highlight of my college years. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity given to me. I also look forward to continuing my association with PrimeBMD and joining the company as a full-time employee after I graduate,” Carmie said, on being asked how she felt about receiving the grant. She also added that she had gained unparallel knowledge in civil engineering, particularly in engineering estimates and construction methodology, while working with us at PrimeBMD.
The Dare to Dream Scholarship is awarded to one deserving Civil Engineering student of Mapúa University with an outstanding academic performance and great potential to lead. The grant covers the scholar’s full matriculation fee with a monthly allowance and a book allowance per term.
We are happy to have Carmie as a part of our PrimeBMD family and as our new Dare to Dream Scholar. We look forward to aiding more competent students with their education in the years to come.
