"I sincerely thank you both for allowing me to receive the Bengier Foundation University Scholarship for the second consecutive academic year. Through your generosity from the previous year, I was able to focus my energy on my studies without having to worry about the burdens of paying for expensive books and lab fees. With this current scholarship I will be able to continue on with my educational journey and reach my personal goals."

I am also an active participant of a program called INC Giving, within my church, Iglesia Ni Cristo, which provides free services to local communities."
