396 Fernandino College Students Receive Scholarship Grants [ Wednesday, 18th of October 2017 | 3 months ago ]
ESAP Head Jayson Caguiat said the amount of scholarship grants they can receive depends from their grades and they shall voluntarily participate in at least one community service.
"Dapat yung i-maintain nilang general weighted average is 80% para maging isang scholar sila at diretso na natin itong ibinibigay sa mga schools nila," Caguiat said.
Caguiat also added that full merit scholarships were also given to students enrolled in courses preferred by the City Government such as criminology, midwifery, social work and environmental science.
In his speech, Mayor Edwin "EdSa" Santiago stressed that education is the key to have a better future.
"Lagi niyong tatandaan na ang edukasyon lamang ang hinding-hindi nila makukuha sa inyo, kaya bilang kayo ay nabigyan ng oportunidad na makapag-aral, hinihikayat ko kayong magsumikap at pagbutihin ang inyong pag-aaral dahil ito ang magdadala sa inyo sa rurok ng tagumpay," Santiago said.
The city mayor also added that the government is always ready and willing to extend help for the education of the students, since it is the administration's top priority.
"Ginawa naming unang prayoridad ang edukasyon dahil naniniwala ako na madaming bata ang gustong mag-aral ngunit kapos sila sa buhay kaya hindi nila masustentuhan ito. Kaya asahan ninyong laging nakaalalay ang gobyerno sa inyo upang suportahan ang inyong mga pangarap," Santiago added.
Also present during the program were Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, City Councilors Harvey Quiwa, Nelson Lingat and Reden Halili.
