Finally, after two years, the students of the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello - UCAB Class of 2022, were able to celebrate the completion of their college studies with the usual events. In July of this year 2022, three of the seven students who have Fundacion Oportunidad y Futuro (FOF) scholarships at UCAB finished their academic education and are only waiting for their commencement ceremony to be held in the first quarter of the year 2023.

As part of the celebration, our students had a picnic with Ms. María Dolores Padrón, who is the person in charge of our students within UCAB; they also attended the traditional toast that is given by the President of UCAB to all students who have completed their studies; and finally they attended an outdoor concert where all undergraduates meet and which is held on the last day of classes, just before leaving for summer vacation.

Our UCAB undergraduate students are:

  • José, who is 22 years old, was admitted as a FOF scholar in October 2016, and is graduating with a degree in Civil Engineering.
  • Victoria, who is 21 years old, was admitted as a FOF scholar in November 2018 and is graduating with a degree in Computer Engineering.
  • Carlos, who is 22 years old, was admitted as a FOF scholar in November 2018 and is graduating with a degree in Telecommunications Engineering.

In addition to the students who graduated from UCAB in July of this year, seven of the twenty-four students that FOF has awarded scholarships at the Instituto Universitario Jesús Obrero - IUJO also completed their academic studies and will be receiving their diplomas sometime in the year 2023.

And finally, on July 31, 2022, the last high school student who received a scholarship from the foundation graduated, and we hope that next year she will begin her college education.

In conclusion, this year Fundación Oportunidad y Futuro has graduated 11 students, whose mentors have not only accompanied and advised them throughout their years as students but will assist them in their search for a job that will help them enter the Venezuelan workforce.

Additionally, and just as FOF is saying goodbye to its eleven graduating students, it is also welcoming eight new scholarship recipients who have joined us in July of this year, all of them from the Instituto Universitario Jesús Obrero - IUJO. We wish them all the success in their journey.

Finalmente, luego de dos años, los estudiantes de la Promoción 2022 de la Universidad Católica Andrés Bello -UCAB pudieron celebrar de manera regular la finalización de sus estudios universitarios. En julio de este año 2022, tres de los siete estudiantes que la Fundacion Oportunidad y Futuro (FOF) tiene becados en la UCAB finalizaron sus estudios y solo están a la espera de su acto de graduación que se celebrará en el primer trimestre del año 2024.

Como parte de la celebración, nuestros estudiantes tuvieron un encuentro con la Lic. María Dolores Padrón, quien es la persona encargada de nuestros estudiantes dentro de la UCAB; además asistieron a un brindis que por tradición, el rector de la UCAB brinda a todos los estudiantes que culminaron sus estudios y por último asistieron a un concierto al aire libre donde se reúnen todos los estudiantes que se gradúan y que se realiza el último día de clases, justo antes de salir de vacaciones.

Nuestros estudiantes graduados de la UCAB son:

 

  • José, que  tiene  22  años, ingresa como becario de la FOF en octubre de 2016, y se gradúa de Ingeniero Civil.
  • Victoria, que tiene 21 años, ingresa como becario de la FOF en noviembre de 2018 y se gradúa de Ingeniero en Informática.
  • Carlos, que tiene 22 años, ingresa como becario de la FOF en noviembre de 2018y se gradúa de Ingeniero en Telecomunicaciones.

Además de los estudiantes graduados de la UCAB en julio de este año también culminaron sus estudios siete de los veinticuatro estudiantes que la FOF tiene becados en el Instituto Universitario Jesús Obrero - IUJO, que de igual manera tendrán su acto de graduación en algún momento del año 2023.

Y por último el 31 de julio de 2022 se graduó la única estudiante de bachillerato becada por la fundación, y que esperamos que el próximo año comience sus estudios universitarios.

En conclusión, este año la Fundación Oportunidad y Futuro ha graduado 11 estudiantes, cuyos tutores no solo los han acompañado y aconsejado a lo largo de sus años como estudiantes sino que ahora los ayudan en la búsqueda de un empleo que los ayude a insertarse en el mercado laboral venezolano.

De la misma manera que la FOF despide a sus estudiantes becados graduados en el 2022, le da la bienvenida a  ocho nuevos becarios que comenzaron sus estudios en julio de este año, todos ellos del Instituto Universitario Jesús Obrero - IUJO y a los cuales les deseamos todo el éxito.
