Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and Councilor Karissa Tolentino-Maxino are reminding college students to apply for financial assistance at P 12, 000.00 for School Year 2018-2019 on or before the deadline on May 28, 2018.

This is part of Mayor Remollo’s program to help qualified college students get financial assistance from the city government at P 12, 000 per school year (P 5, 000 for 1st semester; P 5, 000 for 2nd semester and P 2, 000 for summer)

Councilor Karissa Tolentino-Maxino clarified that qualified college students, who are residents of the city and enrolled in both private or public colleges and universities, can apply under the program provided that they must have a GPA of at least 80% upon application and a passing GPA in the succeeding semesters.

Sangguniang Kabataan officials are encouraged to help inform interested college students to submit the required documents before the City Social Welfare and Development Office and to get additional information. Only limited slots are available.
