Scholarship Policies


A student can avail of only one scholarship.


Special grants are given only to students who belong to low socio-economic status.


Criteria for selection will be set by the agency/donor of the grant in coordination with the Office of the Scholarship Coordinator.


The funds for scholarship received as trust fund shall be spent solely for the purpose.


Donors are to deposit the funds on or before the start of the enrollment period of the first semester or for the whole year.


A scholarship committee (composed of the Dean of Student Affairs, Guidance, Scholarship Coordinator, Student Services Coordinator and Supreme Student Council President) screen all applicants and possible candidates for scholarships or grants. The committee then submits the bio-data of the applicants or candidates to the University President for approval in case of a scholarship or to the donor agency for its approval in case of a grant.


Some scholarship grants include tuition and miscellaneous fees, book allowance per semester, and a monthly stipend. A memorandum of Agreement (MOA) containing provisions of scholarship is executed between the scholar and the university/sponsor.


Some scholarships specify that the recipient pay back the stipend in installment as soon as the scholar has a job. A MOA for this purpose is also executed between the scholar and the university/sponsor.
