Far Eastern University Outstanding Alumnus Dr. Ramon S. Ang credited his tremendous success in business to his time as a working student in FEU and now wants to extend the same opportunity for deserving but less-privileged students.

FEU and Dr. Ang, San Miguel Corporation’s (SMC) President and Chief Operating Officer, reached an agreement on November 27, 2018 at the San Miguel Corporation Head Office on financial aid for students. This will be open for students in board programs such as Medical Technology, Architecture, Psychology, Accountancy, Education and Nursing under FEU Manila and Engineering at the FEU Institute of Technology.

Dr. Ang’s first of many donations will go to the OneFEUFund campaign.

“Thank You, Ramon and San Miguel, for helping us successfully launch a OneFEUFund campaign on the occasion of our 90th Founding Anniversary this year, and our dream of raising Php100 million over the next ten years from our faithful and supportive Alumni. In one super generous manner, through your efforts, we have taken a major step towards achieving our target even before our December 8, 2018 Grand Alumni Homecoming in Morayta, Mabuhay, our King Tamaraw!” according to FEU Chairman Aurelio R. Montinola III.

Around 300 students will benefit from the scholarship program that will run for the next 10 years to coincide with FEU’s 100th Founding Anniversary in 2028.

Dr. Ang graduated in 1980 with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. He was conferred with the degree of Doctor of Business Engineering Honoris Causa during the 90th General Commencement Exercises last June 27, 2018 at the Philippine International Convention Center.

“FEU has taught me well. FEU made me what I am today. Looking back, being a working student helped me become more equipped to deal with people from all walks of life. One of the reasons for my accomplishments is because of my ability to read people and situations. I am able to adapt. I make tough decisions based on gut instinct,” he said during his commencement address.
