UST to honor commitment to student-athlete scholars

University of Santo Tomas will still continue in honoring the scholarships of its student-athletes.

In a statement by UST's Institute of Physical Education director Rev. Fr. Ermito G. De Sagon, O.P., he said that guaranteeing to the Tigers that their scholarships will not be affected by the cost-cutting measures of the school.

"In line with the statement made by UST's Rector Magnificus Rev. Fr. Richard G. Ang, O.P. -- in his letter to all the stakeholders of the university dated May 26, 2020 which guarantees that there will be a 'continuation of the university scholarships granted during the second term of the academic year 2019-2020 until December 2020,' all scholarships conferred by IPEA to its athletes during the second term of the academic year 2019-2020 shall be carried on until December 2020," it said.

"Therefore there shall be no athlete who will be released from scholarship this coming first term of A.Y. 2020-2021."

This comes after reports surfaced that at least 30 student-athletes will see their scholarships removed while others will be relegated to a "training pool" to keep 50-percent of their scholarships.

UST though debunked this, assuring that no Tiger will be left behind.
