Hello there! The UP Diliman Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs’ #OpportunitiesCorner is a weekly update on available scholarships, exchange programs, conferences, workshops, and other skill-enhancing initiatives for UP Diliman students. Here’s for the end of June 2021!

APRU Undergraduate Leaders’ Program (ULP) 2021

ULP 2021 will immerse youth leaders to the challenges of a developing country in the Asia-Pacific through a 12-day program of virtual lectures and workshops with proactive and interactive sessions on creativity, innovation, and empowerment together with local and international experts from the fields of Science and the Arts.

By joining the ULP 2021, youth leaders will gain a multifaceted perspective on achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Asia-Pacific region and be equipped with necessary knowledge and skills on production of video blog or vlog and critical digital literacy which aims to develop active and engaged thinkers and creators in digital environments.

As an output for the program, youth leaders are expected to propose solutions to these emerging challenges by producing their own video blog or vlog.

Participants will also have the chance to meet exemplary leaders in their respective fields such as in good governance, environment and climate change, biofortification, and  agriculture, among others.


To ensure the academic and experiential quality of the program, the participation of ULP 2021 will be capped at 64 students. Each APRU member university may nominate up to five (5) students for the ULP. Live Streaming options for the program will be available for observers and the public.
