Malampaya Foundation Inc. (MFI) has renewed agreements for the Malampaya Sustainable Development (SD) scholarships with select universities in the fields of engineering, geology and environment sciences and management.

The Malampaya SD Scholarship program aims to form a critical mass of professionals and specialists on sustainable energy development and environment/natural resources management to help the provinces of Palawan, Oriental Mindoro and Batangas pursue sustainable development. It is intended for the local residents who possess the motivation and desire to serve their localities.

The scholarship is designed to meet the requirements of sustainability—balancing the economic, social and environmental aspects of a society’s development needs. Over the long-term, the program envisions the creation of a pool of local human resources that will provide leadership, advocacy and services in the conservation of natural resources, protection of environmental quality and the promotion of sustainable and clean energy technologies. After graduation, the scholars are expected to actively participate in the development efforts of their respective localities or within the Philippines for at least two (2) years.

The universities involved are University of the Philippines, Batangas State University and Palawan State University.  Further information may be obtained from the universities’ respective scholarship offices.
