Jaynie Pajarillaga, a third year communication student, bested more than a hundred applicants from different schools and universities across the Philippines and bagged a scholarship from Lamudi Philippines. She is along side Walter David Villegas, a third-year Development Studies major at the University of the Philippines Manila.

The two Lamudi scholars will receive Php20,000 educational assistance which will be given directly to the school to cover some of their tuition fees. The two will also be awarded with a paid internship in any department at the Lamudi Philippines office.

"We saw in both Walter and Jaynie what we see in the Philippines: exceptional, talented, and determined, and by thoroughly reviewing their application documents and credentials we are very sure that we made the right choice," shared Bhavna Shuresh Chathambeth, Lamudi Philippines and’s new Managing Director and CEO.

According to Pajarillaga, being an achiever is her way of giving back to her hard-working parents, a teacher and a driver. She never lets obstacles become a hindrance on her way to success. For her, will and determination are important, problems may arise but she believes that you have to learn to swim on your own. "I never forget my goal to continue being excellent despite all the obstacles that block my way, and because of that, I am still consistent in maintaining high grades," she shared.

There are about 50 participating colleges and universities in this year's scholarship program and more than 100 students sent in their applications. The company looks to expanding the program to cover more schools and students. Lamudi also announced that call for applications for the 2017–2018 scholarship program will start sometime in March 2017.
