Cebu Provincial Government partnered with Cebu Technological University (CTU) for Paglaum Scholarship Program.
Scholars under this initiative (to be implemented by the Provincial Women Commission) will receive a monthly stipend of P1,500.00 and P10,000.00 for tuition and miscellaneous fees per semester.
Students who may avail of the grant are permanent residents of the province, differently abled, marginalized, less fortunate, and those children of drug users and pushers who surrendered to the police.
Hon. Davide said in his inspirational message that education has always been the priority of the provincial government. It is supported by Vice Governor Agnes Magpale who stressed on the idea that if the people in a certain community are not given the right and proper education, that particular community is nothing.
In his acceptance speech, CTU President Rosein Ancheta, Jr. appreciated the Provincial Government’s effort of passing an ordinance providing a tertiary scholarship program for the underprivileged yet deserving students. He said that CTU has always been supportive in educating the youth especially those in the marginalized sectors.
Moreover, Gov. Davide expressed his sincerest thanks to the partner educational institutions for wholeheartedly embracing the province’s educational agenda.
The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed during the programs’s launching on September 14, 2016 at the Provincial Capitol Social Hall. (Irvin A. Narsico, Scholarship Coordinator).
