Online real estate platform Lamudi Philippines wants to drive socioeconomic development in the countries where it operates. They have launched a new scholarship program for undergraduate college students in the Philippines.
Applicants should be over 18 years old, in their third or fourth year of their college studies, and have a consistent GPA of 1.75 or higher. In particular, Lamudi is looking for those majoring in Business and Management, Economics, Marketing, Media and Communications, Information Technology and Computer Science, and Engineering. However, those with other majors may also apply. Those who have the most potential will be awarded with PHP 20,000 and a paid internship in any department at Lamudi’s local office in the Philippines. One student will be chosen for each semester for the 2016–2017 academic year.
How to Apply
To complete the application, the first step is to fill in an online form. Students must also submit scanned copies of their school IDs and transcript of records, a letter of intent, and a letter of recommendation from a relevant professor. Applicants must send application no later than December 16, 2016, and the results will be announced from December 23, 2016.
Show Some Desire and Character
Entrants must write a letter of intent (500 words in length). In the letter, applicants should showcase their talents and their potential. They should express what an internship at Lamudi would mean to them and explain how they would put the scholarship funds to good use.
Working in a tech company like Lamudi demands strength of character. Entrants who can show that they are capable of driving innovation in a team will be the most successful of all. If applicants can demonstrate ways in which they have overcome obstacles, this is sure to impress.
