The continued quest to serve as men-and-women-for-others lies in the heart of the Blue Eagle Circle, a registered international alumni association of the Ateneo de Manila University. Our flagship program is the Annual Stipend Award.
Established over 30 years ago in Southern California, the association maintains members from all over the world who have graduated and completed at least 4 years of studies at any of the academic units of ADMU. Our multi-generational set of officers and members are committed to honoring the founding members and aims of the association while bringing in innovative ideas and leveraging technology to reach and impact the lives of more Ateneans.
Although oceans and continents apart from our beloved alma mater, the Blue Eagle Circle keeps the Ateneo spirit and guiding principle, Lux in Domino, very much alive in every way.

Incorporated in 1992, the Ateneo Alumni Association of British Columbia is meant to unite alumni and former teachers of the Ateneo universities in the Philippines now residing in BC. It was formed to promote recreational, cultural and economic well-being of Ateneans, cooperate with both Canadian and Philippine governments in worthwhile endeavours and raise funds in support of projects adopted by the Association. Our main beneficiary for most of our activities has been our AAABC scholarship fund where students from the different chapters of Ateneo are given financial assistance to complete their studies. Other beneficiaries include elderly and infirm Jesuits in the Philippines.
Our social activities range from sports (golf, badminton, volleyball, basketball), cultural shows (Ateneo Glee Club), movie premieres (Ignacio de Loyola), dinner dances (Christmas parties, Ateneo Fest), summer events (annual picnic), most of which are meant to raise funds for our beneficiary projects.
Founded in 1978 and now going strong at 43 years, AUSAC has been able to stay focused on its mission – The Ateneans USA Scholarship Program. Despite the pandemic of 2020-21, our members and Board of Directors continued to be engaged and stayed active, meeting virtually through email communications.
Our Scholarship Program consists of two endowment funds, each in the amount of $30,000. The first fund was started in 1996 and has been directed to scholars enrolled in Ateneo de Manila. The second fund was raised and invested in 2007-2008 and has benefited those studying in the Ateneo schools of Naga, Cagayan de Oro (Xavier), Davao and Zamboanga, on a rotation basis. The interest and dividend earnings of the invested funds pay for tuition, fees and dorm expenditures. Much of the scholarship endowment funds were raised during the 1997-03 and 2006-09 terms of Dr. Rodrigo Farrales Jr., then President of AUSAC and now Chairman of AAANA.
