CAREERS, EDC’s flagship education program, provides financial support and mentoring to top-performing students from our geothermal project sites’ partner high schools for their tertiary education. The students are encouraged to apply to and enroll in the different University of the Philippines (UP) campuses nationwide and other local state universities and colleges. Since the program started in 2010, it has already produced 43 graduates, including a magna cum laude in 2017 and a cum laude in 2018, both graduating from UP Visayas.
The program aims to address the expressed need for tertiary education support with the Company’s host communities.
