TABUK CITY, Kalinga- – Following the distribution of P5,000.00 in cash to selected students supported by the city government through its scholarship program, city scholars are urged to go above and beyond in their studies.
This is the statement made by Lejani Dalieng of the City Scholarship Office in her guest appearance on ‘Tabuk City Updates,’ a city government radio program, saying that being a city scholar is a privilege granted to those deserving students based on the requirements and should not be squandered by not studying hard enough.
According to Dalieng, this reminder is necessary to keep scholars aware of their scholarship obligations, which include earning a mark higher than the established maintenance grade of 75 percent in each subject.
Dalieng stated that each student has problems in their academic career, particularly in this new learning environment, and that they should take these challenges seriously in order to improve.
Meanwhile, Sharon Linda Callagan, also of the CSO, said that the program, which aims to help poor and deserving students get an education, also aims to produce more professionals who may become instrumental figures in nation building.
According to records of the city scholarship office, there are now 2,904 scholars in senior high school and college from both public and private schools across the city.
