Ateneo de Manila University alumnae made International Women’s Day more significant when they gathered to formally close the celebration of 40 years of coeducation in the Ateneo. A short program held at the Aliww Reading Room followed a Eucharistic celebration and updated the gathered coeds on the scholarship fund for females launched during the event opening last September. The fundraising for the P20 million fund called “Coed at 40 Half the Sky Scholarship Fund” aims to give out 40 scholarship awards worth P500,000.00. As of this posting, the amount gathered from donations and pledges has reached P 3.5 Million, less than 20% of the target amount. Dr. Antonette Palma-Angeles (AB Philosophy 1977), Vice President for the Ateneo Professional Schools and Co-chair of the organizing committee said that they will tap more class representatives to follow up on the pledges and write to the coeds individually. Members of the audience also gave suggestions like tapping the younger batches, encouraging also the men to give, and to focus on corporate fund raising. The Coed at 40 Half the Sky Scholarship campaign was extended until next year to reach their goal of P20 million. Ateneo de Manila University President Fr Jett Villarin SJ thanked everybody for sharing in this “mission” and encouraged, especially the younger batches to give even a small amount. He said that the graduates of the Ateneo are the success indicators of the university.  “You are what the Ateneo is about. It will depend on how your lives turn out,” he said.   Click here for the photos of the mass and the closing ceremony
