An agreement was signed between Central Mindanao University (CMU) and IRRI on 19 July 2013 to deliver the Gawad Patnubay College Scholarship Program for deserving dependents of agrarian reform beneficiaries, cooperatives, and local government units where the Land Bank of the Philippines (Landbank) operates.
Ma. Luisa Soliven, CMU president, signed the agreement with Corinta Guerta, IRRI director for external relations.
Witnessing the signing were Revelieta Alovera, head of CMU’s Plant Pathology Department; Glenn Gregorio, IRRI senior scientist; Eugenio Castro, senior research manager at the IRRI Training Center (TC); and Anilyn Maningas, assistant manager at the TC.
