UP Alumni Association British Columbia Scholarship

Scholarship Background

In March 1913, UP President Murray Bartlett (1911-1915) sowed the seeds of the University of the Philippines Alumni Association when he urged College of Law Dean George Malcolm to call a meeting for the purpose of forming such an association.

Throughout its history, the UPAA has been fired up by its mission of fostering Honor and Excellence, Service and Leadership, the very same ideals held sacrosanct by the Alma Mater. Projects of the association have sought to promote these ideals, as well as encourage unity, loyalty and institution building among the graduates, so that united, they can better serve their communities and the nation, thus doing their Alma Mater proud. The UPAA has undertaken several projects to promote excellence in teaching, research and extension services.

The UP Alumni Association British Columbia is one of the UPAA Abroad accredited chapters. The University of the Philippines Alumni Association in B.C. is made up of UP Alumni who have settled in British Columbia, Canada. The association’s purpose is not only to provide camaraderie among its members but also to participate in worthwhile projects in the Filipino-Canadian community.
