Recognition of DA-BAR Scholars.

 

 

To contribute to the country’s manpower requirements in agriculture and related fields by supporting BS students, the Department of Agriculture – Bureau of Agricultural Research has been implementing an Undergraduate Scholarship Program through the Institutional Development Division. This is in partnership with the University of the Philippines Los Baños through the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (UPLB OVCAA) and UPLB Foundation Inc. (UPLBFI).

The program was launched by DA-BAR and UPLB in 2012 and was initially for BS Agriculture and BS Agricultural Biotechnology students. In 2015, the scholarship was made available to students taking other agriculture-related courses, namely, BS Food Technology and BS Development Communication. To date, six batches having a total of 73 scholars have been supported through BAR.

Prior to the Graduation Ceremony, the UPLB Office of the Student Affairs (UPLB OSA) held the “Isang Parangal… Isang Pasasalamat… Ika-4 Taon” to recognize graduating scholars and donor partners on 14 June 2018.

To represent DA-BAR Director Dr. Nicomedes P. Eleazar, Assistant Director and concurrent IDD Head Ms. Digna L. Sandoval attended the event. Also present were Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Dr. Portia G. Lapitan, UPLBFI Executive Director Dr. Casiano S. Abrigo Jr., and UPLB Office of the Student Affairs Director Atty. Eleno O.
