#AtletangAyala: Ayala, DLSU to offer scholarships to qualified national athletes; Deadline of application extended

MANILA – The Ayala Center for Excellence in Sports (ACES) and the De La Salle University (DLSU) signed today a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) in support of the #AtletangAyala, a program that seeks to assist Philippine national athletes during their athletic and post-athletic careers.

Under the MOA, DLSU will provide scholarships for Atletang Ayala national athletes who would like to continue their education. The MOA will enable these athletes to matriculate in DLSU’s world-class programs, eventually earning degrees that will support their career development.

“We are happy to partner with the Ayala Group of Companies in support of the Filipino national athlete,” said Bro. Bernard Oca, DLSU president. “De La Salle University has been very blessed to count many illustrious national athletes among its alumni, such as Lim Eng Beng and Ian Lariba.

We are proud to be able to continue that tradition, this time in partnership with ACES.”

ACES Program Director Jan Bengzon said, “We are very grateful to have DLSU as the education partner for the Atletang Ayala program. DLSU has long been an innovator in the development of world-class curricula that are delivered in ways that suit athletes’ lifestyles and requirements without compromising its high academic standards. These qualities fit seamlessly with the Atletang Ayala program, and DLSU’s scholarships will be a much-needed benefit for program athletes.”
