PACES stands for the Philippine-Austrian Cultural and Educational Society. It is an association of like-minded members of the Philippine-Austrian community who believe in promoting the study of science and technology as a vehicle for development and progress.
PACES’ core activity is a scholarship program – STEMS70 – which aims to provide full scholarship to deserving students in the Philippines pursuing college degrees in the scientific fields, and will promote this learning process by strengthening the inter-cultural dialogue and the bilateral relationship between these two nations .
The Philippines and Austria are two countries with distinct historical and cultural backgrounds, and there are important knowledge and values that the people of one country can learn from the other. PACES is founded on the idea that peoples and societies develop and progress by learning from each other.
PACES activities build around the following concepts:
- PACES promotes intercultural exchange between Austria and the Philippines;
- PACES supports science as a vehicle for progress and development;
- PACES supports education initiatives in science and technology; and
- PACES helps provide full scholarships to deserving students.
