Governor Bong Lacson and International College of Advance Education (ICAE) Chief Executive Officer, Sean Mahoney, signed a Memorandum of Agreement for the “Study Now, Pay Later” Australia Scholarship Program at Darwin, NT, Australia, yesterday (Nov 9).
The recipients of the said scholarship are qualified and deserving Negrense students in the field of hospitality, tourism, and cookery.
They will study at ICAE, based in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.
The scholarship aims to provide the Negrense youth with the opportunity to study and work in Australia and pave the way for them to obtain a stable career and qualify for a work visa and eventually permanent work visa and residency.
It is stated in the MOA that ICAE will provide qualified Negrense scholars with vocational training, which will incorporate an equal mix of classroom study and paid industry placement for hospitality and commercial cookery.
The scholarship programs offered by ICAE are accredited and approved by the Australian Government, and in coordination with the Office of the Honorary Consul to NT, Australia, Januario Rivas.
Gov. Lacson also attended the ICAE Graduation Ceremony, yesterday, together with Consul Rivas and the Negros Occidental delegation.
