MPC-Naga President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Marilissa J. Ampuan was represented at the occasion by Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Mariel Estrella and joined by other school officials.

Among those granted the scholarships are students taking-up Culinary Arts and other related courses who will work as ship cooks and chefs earmarked to be hired after graduation in cargo sea vessels. This shipping company has vessels plying worldwide, with routes from Europe to Asia, North and South America, Australia and Africa.

Students granted the scholarship include Mark Anthony Eva, Jorim Sumanguid, Paulo Degamon, Eliezer Perez and Billy Boy Agawin.

The scholars are expected to maintain the required academic standing for them to be able to remain in the roster of student-grantees jointly supported by Marlow Navigation and Mariners Polytechnic Colleges.

This MOA benefiting the students is a product of the relentless effort of the school administration to maintain linkages with shipping companies and other firms where students can work even outside of the country after they graduate from the institution.
