Latte Training Academy announces founders scholarship opening date

(LTA) — The Latte Training Academy’s board of directors recently announced the opening date of its 2018-2019 founders scholarship funding round.

Since the inception of the program, LTA has provided more than $20,000 in college scholarships to its previous participants. This year’s funding round will open on Aug. 1, 2018 and close on Sept. 30, 2018.

“We are extremely excited to announce this year’s scholarship funding round. We are proud to continue to support our award recipients as they continue the pursuit of their educational and career goals. We believe that this year’s funding round will be far more competitive as we have opened up the applications to many more LTA students in all of our course offerings,” said LTA president Juan-Carlos Benitez.

The Latte Training Academy’s founders scholarship program is open to all LTA participants who have successfully completed one of the organization’s training certification program within the past three years. Historically, the program was open to students who participated in the program through the CNMI Public School System, however the organization has opened it up to all LTA participants who have completed one of their certification programs. Previous award winners include Eloise Lopez, Sam Esturas, Angel Mar Panimutan, You Na Lee, Renafe Aniga, Jewel Mae Antatico, Jezreelyn Bulaklak, Chenoa Bunts-Anderson, Melisha Lizama, Fritz Jan Manzano, Christian Lyle Motiveros, Janette Orosco and Kaila Marie Rubio.

 “We are proud to support our participants in continuing their education. We understand the sacrifice it takes for an individual to prepare for a career, thus we don’t shy away from the responsibility to continue to aid our participants after they complete one of our certification programs. Each one of these participants exemplifies the dedication to self-improvement and we are truly proud of their efforts,” said LTA executive director Arielle Buyum.
