Posted On June 10, 2013
It is every parent’s dream to see their children finish their education, and achieve their greatest potential. Now, GCASH REMIT in partnership with STI, one of the country’s largest network of schools, makes every parent’s dream come true by sending five (5) OFW nominees to college with the Magpadala, Magka-diploma GCASH REMIT Promo.
OFWs sending money from abroad to the Philippines via GCASH REMIT will have a chance to nominate their child, relative or other family member to receive a full scholarship grant for any 4-year course at any STI campus nationwide.
“Education is definitely the best foundation for a successful future, and we at GCASH REMIT understand the need for young Filipinos to acquire a college diploma for a better life ahead. We are excited for this new promo as we are not only sending a deserving student to tertiary education, but we’ll also reward the beneficiaries of our OFWs abroad with cash prizes for the winning nominations,” said Paolo Baltao, President of G-Xchange Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Globe and operator of GCASH. “This is our simple way of honoring our overseas Filipinos using GCASH REMIT, who have worked hard for their families from a distance in order to send their kids to college and provide better lives for their loved ones. We hope that with the scholarships, we will be able to make a difference in their lives.”
To nominate a loved one, an OFW family member must send money to the Philippines via GCASH REMIT, which has outlets in 33 countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, United States, Canada, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Ireland, Australia, Guam, and Saipan.
Every remittance sent entitles the OFW to nominate one deserving student for the scholarship grant via www.globe.com.ph/gcashdiploma. Beneficiaries of OFWs with winning nominees additionally get Php10,000 each. 100 pieces of Jollibee gift certificates would also be raffled away. Promo is from May 27 to August 27, 2013. Scholarship winners will be announced on September 20, 2013.
