TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The Scholarship Division of the City Special Concerns and Coordinating Office announced Tuesday that only 180 scholarship slots are up for grabs this first semester of school year 2022-2023.
In a conversation with Amado Bommosao, he explained that the 180 available slots are the replacement of the scholar graduates last year, and that due to budget cuts, not all scholarship applicants will be accepted.
He also reported that because of this limited slots, the Scholarship Division is carefully reviewing documents submitted by the applicants to identify the most qualified based on their economic status and grades in the previous school year.
Bommosao also reminded that applicants who were not prioritized may also apply to other agencies offering scholarship grants like the Office of the Congressman, National Commission on Indigenous People, and the Commission on Higher Education.
City scholars are expected to perform well in their studies and excel in their course, as only a select few get the opportunity to experience.
Currently, the city government is offering P5,000.00 grant to each scholar at the end of the semester. The deadline of submission of requirements is set on August 31, and by that time, the office would decide whether there are still remaining slots to be distributed (for both new and renewal applications) to those who forwarded documents beginning January to May 2022 as the priority.
