COUNCILOR Jay Pascual, vice chair of City Council committee on education, said he is optimistic that there will be an increase in the number of city scholars this coming school year.
In a radio program aired on Thursday, Pascual reiterated his full support to the city government’s educational plans and programs, which can be availed of by the scholars.
It may be recalled that the 18th City Council headed by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy enacted Ordinance No. 13362-2018, providing for the City Scholarship Code.
Authored by Councilors Suzette Magtajas-Daba and Ian Mark Nacaya, the ordinance provides different scholarship programs for students. These include performance-based, income-based, College Financial Assistance, Research Grants and Graduate Course types. (sp)
