LAMUDI LAUNCHES UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Global real estate website’s scholarship program aims to help exemplary Filipino college students
MANILA, 28 September 2016: Online real estate platform Lamudi Philippines (www.lamudi.com.ph) is committed to helping to drive socioeconomic development in the countries where it operates. This desire to contribute to community development led to the launch of a new scholarship program for undergraduate college students in the Philippines.
Experience Life in an International Enterprise
Students who will soon be in the job market are usually in need of two things: money and experience. Lamudi is encouraging bright, driven, and enthusiastic college undergraduates to enter a competition for a brand-new scholarship. 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.
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 2, 2016, and the results will be announced from December 12.
Demonstrating Enthusiasm and Strength of Character
In order to be successful, 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. Tenacity, positivity, and a determination to succeed are key. As an online property platform, Lamudi brings innovation and transparency to the real estate industry. 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.
A Mutually Beneficial Initiative
Lamudi is keen to attracting new talent, and so this program is mutually beneficial; Lamudi stands the chance of gaining a talented recent graduate, and a student has the opportunity to impress a potential future employer. Who knows – this could be the start of a prosperous career!
