The country’s pioneering live-streaming and digital bingo game operator BingoPlus through BingoPlus Foundation is set to invest in the vast potential of young Filipinos to help engineer a better future for the country.
BingoPlus Foundation officially inked a 3-year, FutureSmart Scholarship Program worth six million pesos with iACADEMY, one of the most innovative and sought-after technology, design, and business academic institutions in the country. The FutureSmart Scholarship program will provide scholarships in BCSC software engineering, BS in entertainment and multimedia computing game development, and BS in information technology with specialization in web development to ten outstanding students from deserving families.
Jasper Vicencio, President of BingoPlus and Trustee of BingoPlus Foundation said, “The FutureSmart Scholarship is our way of investing in the country’s youth as the driver of progress in the future. And we want to give equal opportunities to deserving students with so much potential but who lack the necessary resources to continue their education in pursuit of their dreams and aspirations for themselves, their families, and the nation. Indeed, doing something good, especially for education is a plus.”
The choice of technology for the program is inspired by BingoPlus. “Economies depend on
digital-savvy individuals who are ready to take the helm of their organization’s digital transformation. BingoPlus itself, like any modern company, runs on the wonders of technology and a solid IT infrastructure. Our mission is not only to provide support for education but also future employment for qualified individuals,” Vincencio added.
iAcademy Chief Operating Officer Raquel Wong meanwhile expressed her utmost gratitude to BingoPlus Foundation for extending its generosity to exemplary students who will not have to worry about finishing the program due to lack of financial resources.
