Prestone® launches Anak ng Mekaniko Scholarship Program Grant, to benefit for nine scholars nationwide
Pasig City—November 21, 2017— In line with its 90th year anniversary, PRESTONE®, a
leading innovator of cutting-edge coolants, brake fluid, and motor oils, pays tribute to the
unsung heroes of the automotive industry, our local auto mechanics, through a nationwide
search for the ANAK NG MEKANIKO SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.
The scholarship program, which will run until February 15, 2018, aims to support the
automotive repair and maintenance services sector in the Philippines by providing free
college education, specifically for deserving children of local auto mechanics.
“PRESTONE® values the contribution made by auto mechanics to the brand’s success.
After nearly a century of milestones, we hope that this program will add to PRESTONE®’s
many firsts,” said Paulo Lao, Sales & Marketing Director of PRESTONE®. “All of these will
not be possible without the support of the loyal PRESTONE® users, especially the local
auto mechanics, who journeyed with us in our feat to ensuring and maintaining safety and
security for drivers and their vehicles.”
Since 1927, PRESTONE® has been innovating and improving its products for the safety
and protection of the Filipino motorists. But more importantly, PRESTONE® also believes
in giving back and advocating to improve the lives of the children of mechanics through
“Filipinos consider education as a symbol of wealth that they can bequeath to their children.
As such, we want to inspire and give hope to nine deserving ANAK NG MEKANIKO
scholars, who will be chosen from across the country,” added Monique Gonzales, Brand
Manager of PRESTONE®.
The ANAK NG MEKANIKO SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM is open to all high school
graduates, graduating senior high school students, passers of Alternative Learning System
(ALS) or Philippine Education Placement Test, as well as for those individuals who want to
go back to complete their college education.
All the nine ANAK NG MEKANIKO Scholars will be granted a full scholarship to a four-year
course of their choice in any STI Colleges branch, nationwide. Aside from the tuition fees,
the grant also includes stipends, as well as books and uniform allowances.
