THE Taguig City government has distributed educational assistance worth up to P40,000 to its second batch of Lifeline Assistance for Neighbors In-Need (LANI) scholars for the 1st semester of the school year 2021-2022.
The four-day distribution of over-the-counter scholarship allowance was set for June 8, 9, 10, and 13.
For the second batch, 4,161 LANI scholars will benefit from the program, the amount of which depends on their scholarship type.
The first batch was for 4,120 scholars, thus the 1st Semester LANI scholars numbered more than 8,000.
For 2021 alone, Taguig Scholarships processed and released about 32,000 allowances under the LANI and TLC Scholarship programs and the Taguig City University Educational Assistance Allowance program.
Also released and processed during that year were the allowances covering the city’s two science high schools.
Mayor Lino Edgardo Cayetano said the local government believes in the value of education and continuously supports its students amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, the city government took part in the groundbreaking ceremony for the new and upcoming Science Terminal and Exhibit Center at Gate 4 of DOST-Taguig.
Taguig City Mayor-elect Laarni Cayetano and her husband Senator-elect Alan Peter Cayetano led the ceremony together with DOST Sec. Fortunato Dela Pena, and Public Works and Highways Sec. Roger Mercado.
The infrastructure is a five-story building with parking areas for tricycles and jeepneys, loading and unloading area, food and
merchandise stalls, DOST offices, and a Sky Roof and Science Exhibit Center.
Mayor-elect Cayetano expressed her gratitude to the institutions that have been helping the city in improving its infrastructure.
“I would like to thank our partners for continuously supporting us in our plans to develop our city. What you are giving us is not just a
building that will address the traffic problem. This project will give a huge signal to residents and investors that not only Fort Bonifacio
is ready for continuous development but also the old town of Taguig,” she said.
