2012 College Scholarship Grant Awardees

Five years ago, the Tapulanga Foundation started giving college scholarship grants to graduates of St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City (SFAS). Two of them have graduated while fourteen are still in college.

Last March 31, 2012, five college scholarship grants were awarded to graduates of SFAS during their graduation.


The Klaus Pfaender College Scholarship Grant is given by Klaus Pfaender, husband of Maricar Totengco, who is the sister of renowned fashion designer Rafe Totengco. Klaus and Maricar, like Rafe, have been committed donors of the scholarship program of Tapulanga Foundation for many years. Just this school year, during the 60th birthday celebration of Sir Klaus, he celebrated in Spain a dinner party and in liue of gifts, he asked his guests to donate to Tapulanga Foundation. And the total amount of gifts he received he matched so he was able to donate to the school $10,000 which went to the procurement of the big tv, home theatre system and two airconditioners in the AVR, two new computers in the lab and 2 college scholarship grants.


Congratulations Nikko Sobretodo and Jessica Macahilig for being the recipients of the Klaus Pfaender College Scholarship Grants, a four-year college scholarship grant. Nikko plans to take up Bachelor of Science in Automotive in TUP, Talisay City. Jessica plans to take up Bachelor of Science in Education in Carlos Hilado Memorial State College, Silay City.
