Taiwan school opens scholarship opportunity for Lapu-Lapu senior high school graduates


CHAOYANG University of Technology in Taiwan has opened its doors to Lapu-Lapu City senior high school graduates to apply for slots of its scholarship program.

This after Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan signed a commitment with the university representative Chih Yuan Huang on March 4, 2020, at the City Hall. Vice Mayor Celedonio Sitoy and the city councilors witnessed the event.

“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our gifted students to go and study in Taiwan under this scholarship,” Chan said.

The Lapu-Lapu City senior high school graduates may apply and qualify for the university’s scholarship program for free, said Sto. Niño Mactan College executive director Sunshine Lim.

Chan thanked Chaoyang University and Sto. Niño Mactan, Chaoyang’s partner in the Philippines, for sharing the opportunity with promising students.

Lim also thanked the mayor and his first lady Cindi Chan, who chairs the City Tourism, Cultural and Heritage Affairs Commission (CTCHAC) for supporting the scholarship program.

Lapu-Lapu City Schools Division Superintendent Wilfreda Bongalos and CTCHAC will help spread the scholarship program to all public and private schools in the city. S
