Some 52 Navoteño students and teachers have qualified for the NavotAAS Scholarship Program of the City Government of Navotas for the school year 2020-2021.
This year’s academic scholars included 30 incoming high school freshmen, 15 incoming freshmen of Navotas Polytechnic College, two incoming freshmen of any college or university, and five teachers seeking higher education.
“We support Navoteños who persevere in their studies so they could fulfill their potential and help their family and community in the future,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.
“Despite the health crisis we are facing, we want our students, as well as our teachers, to continue learning and pursue their dreams. Let us not allow this pandemic to hinder them from achieving their aspirations in life,” he added.
The city government gives high school scholars P18,000 per academic year for book, transportation, and food allowance.
NPC scholars get P22,000 per academic year for tuition, book, transportation, and food allowance. Scholars of other colleges or universities are given P262,000 for the same.
