CSPC and ULAP.org signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) last July 22, 2021, to make their partnership official, particularly in helping underrepresented STEM students kickstart a career in cloud, data, and technology through accessible cloud and data-driven advocacy programs. ULAP, which stands for Underrepresented Youth Learning Assistance Program, is a Denmark-based, for-purpose, non-stock, non-profit organization, providing scholarship, pro bono professional training, and community events.

As Academic Partner, CSPC commits its full support to ULAP’s core programs in 2021 which are the Cloud Career Kickstarter which aims to provide training and mentorship to IT students through a scholarship, and Community Days which intends to gather cloud advocates, enthusiasts and learners.

The MOU was signed by Dr. Charlito P. Cadag, CSPC President and Ms. Michelle Ann Tabirao, ULAP’s Co-founder. The activity was witnessed by Ms. Marilag Dimatulac, ULAP Co-founder; Dr. Amado A. Oliva, Jr., CSPC VPAA; Dr. April Z. Luzon, Dean of CSPC College of Arts and Sciences; and Ms. Kaela Marie N. Fortuno, Program Chair of BSCS. Assoc. Prof. Filmor J. Murillo, CILA Director, facilitated the ceremony.
