3 granted Japan scholarship
Three Negrenses were granted full scholarship by the Japan Doctors' and Citizens' Network for Home Care Supporting, in collaboration with the provincial government of Negros Occidental, a press release from Capitol said.
Larriza Buena of Sagay City, XZ Cabalatungan - La Carlota City, and Honee Macaya of Bacolod City will go to Japan Saturday after they underwent a series of examinations and interviews before qualifying for the program.
Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. and Dr. Minoru Irahara signed a memorandum of understanding at the Capitol for the scholarship last year, the press release said.
The scholars will be granted full scholarship in a Japanese language school in Japan for two years. They will also be provided airfare ticket to Japan, and will be given an opportunity for further study after completing the two-year scholarship and after passing the entrance examination for specialization in a university in that country. The scholars are also assured of their safety and security during their stay there, the press release also said.
Marañon advised the scholars to bring their bibles with them, and reminded them to pray every day. He said that life in Japan is different from the Philippines but it is an excellent place to study and work because it is very clean and people are disciplined and honest, the press release added*
