The Road to Prosperity

Celebrations start for the 40th Anniversary!

On Sept. 20, the University of Guam Endowment Foundation unveiled its newly painted mural titled “The Road to Prosperity,” painted by UOG alumnus Lee H. San Nicolas. The mural will help usher in the foundation’s 40th anniversary celebration, which will take place in April.

Inspired by the UOG Endowment Foundation’s logo, the mural is comprised of a conch shell and puti tai nobio flowers.

“In the distant past, conch shells were used as an instrument to call members of an island community together,” said Katrina Perez, executive director of the foundation. “The puti tai nobio … is bountiful, easily propagated, hardy, and represents island beauty and resilience.”

“Perhaps the most personal and directly beneficial form of giving the foundation facilitates is through the establishment of scholarships.”- Katrina Perez, Executive Director, UOG Endowment Foundation

The mural also features surrounding shells, representing the neighboring islands that are impacted by the University of Guam and a blue background, representing the sea and sky that connect all humanity.

San Nicolas graduated in 2015 with a bachelor’s in liberal arts. He has been painting street murals and canvas paintings for 10 years and is the artist behind many notable murals around the island, including the “Marianas Trench” in front of the Guam Legislature, “Chamorrita Girl” on the Tamuning Business Center, and the 3D painting titled “Ayuyu” (coconut crab) in Anigua.

The UOG Endowment Foundation assists the philanthropic intentions of donors in support of the university and its students.

“Perhaps the most personal and directly beneficial form of giving the foundation facilitates is through the establishment of scholarships,” Perez said.

This year, the foundation will be awarding students with several scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000. Each was established by a community donor.

“Our 40th anniversary theme is ‘Transform a Triton, Transform the World,’” Perez said. “We truly believe that, and we encourage any individual, organization, or business that is interested in creating or donating to an existing scholarship to reach out to us and become part of a transformation.”

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of UOG Marine Lab!

Hafa Adai Marine Lab Friends and Family!

The UOG Marine Laboratory is one of the world’s first research facilities to specialize in the study of coral reefs. The Marine Lab is the only U.S. university adjacent to what is commonly considered the global epicenter of marine diversity, the Coral Triangle, encompassing the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, a title UOG can still claim today. The lab attracted several of the best coral reef ecologists who contributed many firsts in coral reef research. Faculty were also involved in the discovery and description of numerous new species and novel chemical compounds. The Marine Lab’s 10 faculty members and 25 graduate students remain active continue to contribute important marine research regionally and nationally, with an emphasis on conservation and adaptation to climate change in Guam and Micronesia.

They celebrated their 50th Anniversary on December 17, 2020 but the pandemic derailed their plans to commemorate the milestone. But they are carrying on with their celebration by producing a commemorative book: University of Guam Marine Laboratory: 50 Years of Science and Service.

Below is a just a sneak peek of the beautiful book filled with contribution to science and the region, their history, Marine Lab anecdotes, original art, and stunning photos. Pre-order a copy for yourself and your loved ones today.

Equality Guam and The Venue Guam Donate to the ISA LGBTQ+ Support Scholarship

As part of Pride Month Celebrations, Equality Guam and The Venue teamed up to host a cocktail fundraiser to benefit the UOG Endowment Foundation’s ISA LGBTQ+ Support Scholarship on June 26, 2021. ISA stands for Inagofli’e Sohyo Aguiya which loosely translates to “friends encouraging to love & accept one another”. The ISA LGBTQ+ Support Scholarship was founded on these principles to empower future LGBTQ+ leaders of Guam to achieve their academic goals, despite emotional or socioeconomic hardships they may face.

Equality Guam Board Member, Acting Governor Joshua Tenorio said, “we’ll be able to continue to raise funds and expand the number of opportunities for young people to get them education–equality education at the University of Guam. Thank you to our allies for enabling our group to come together, have fun, and help some young people as a result.” Senior Vice President and Provost of the University of Guam, Dr. Anita Borja Enriquez noted, “At UOG, we do have many pockets of underserved communities, students, those who feel marginalized… and so we are committed through our college affordability initiative to see what we can do to close all those gaps. Thank you to all of you who have made it possible to highlight the fact that we do have opportunities to raise everybody up together and to ensure that they are given equal access to these opportunities that advance our communities as a whole.”

The cocktail hour raised $15,675.00 towards the scholarship. Phil Roberto, owner of The Venue Guam, donated an additional $3,000.00 towards the ISA Scholarship at an appreciation luncheon held at Three Squares on July 19, 2021.

This brings the total funds raised to $18,675.00 to benefit UOG LGBTQ+ students. Si Yu’os Ma’ase to Equality Guam and The Venue for helping our scholarships grow. A huge Un Dangkalu na Si Yu’os Ma’ase to Choice Broadcasting for helping the UOG Endowment Foundation get the word out about the fundraiser and the importance of the scholarship.

The UOG Endowment Foundation will announce the opening of the scholarship for applications during Fanuchånan 2021 to be awarded in Fañomnåkan 2022.
