Global dental care brand Colgate has awarded a scholarship to Irish M. Aplaten, a senior clinician of the UB School of Dentistry.
The scholarship – which covers the school year 2013-2014 – was granted to Aplaten “for her diligence, determination and excellence in studying Dentistry.”
During the awarding ceremony – wherein a check worth P25,000 was presented to Aplaten – Colgate has signified its intention to offer a four-year scholarship grant to another deserving UB Dentistry student next year.
One of the University’s partners, Colgate is pushing its oral health promotion campaign, sponsoring dental health programs. It is committed to developing future dental professionals, linking with dental schools. UB has been collaborating with Colgate for its activities. – Pauline Joy Caluza
