“Leaders are not born, they’re made.”

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, PHINMA launched The PHINMA National Scholarship (PNS) in 2006. In line with its mission of making lives better through education and nation-building, the program’s goal is to produce not just professionals but leaders for the next generation. Through the formation and social development, the program aims to help the PNS Scholars become socially engaged individuals who will contribute to the Philippines’ economic and social development.

Now on its 14th year, the program consists of 224 graduates in the fields of education, accountancy, and engineering.
