The Core Tech Foundation’s annual scholarship program are expanding to the CNMI. Over the weekend, the foundation’s chairman – Ho Eun – announced the opening of the application period for Guam high school students to apply for $50,000 in college scholarships.
After seeing the news on Kandit, CNMI Sen. Celina Roberto Babauta wrote to Mr. Eun (known to most as Mr. Ho) requesting the regional businessman offer the scholarships to Commonwealth students.
“As I am sure you have read, our beloved Commonwealth is enduring through an economic and government fiscal crisis. Leaders, since January, have taken the necessary steps on the path to the long and hard work of recovery. As we traverse this crisis, it is my firm belief we cannot lose sight of what truly is important: raising a new generation of responsible citizens.
”A mutual friend of ours informed me that you value education as part of the Road to Excellence on Guam. I see our economies growing more interconnected in the years ahead. I ask that your foundation include students from the Commonwealth on that path to excellence. Please consider extending The Core Tech Foundation’s annual scholarship to our students.”
Mr. Eun replied to the senator: “Henry [Taitano] requested the same earlier. Your kind thought will be recognized well. We will include the CNMI students as well.”
Mr. Eun and his wife, He Eun, established the scholarship a decade ago on Guam.
Students may apply for the scholarship at coretechintl.com/foundation. The application deadline is April 14, 2023 for this year’s scholarships. Stay tuned to announcements from The Core Tech Foundation and the Guam Daily Post.
