Among the 130 sponsored high school students, 12 graduated in March. For the first time in 8 years, the Foundation is extending its scholarship program to assists outstanding students in attaining a college degree. In the Philippines, education can be costly especially to families who struggle to make two ends meet. The criteria to apply include; applicants must have been a part of the HELP Foundation elementary and high school sponsorship program; the student must reside in Bukidnon and must enroll in a college, university or technical college within the province and Cagayan de Oro City; and maintain a cumulative GPA (Grade Point Average) of 85%.
The past school year 2014- 2015 we have admitted 9 out of 12 candidates in our college scholarship program. They enrolled in universities situated within the district and are taking courses in (5) Business Administration, (2) Criminology, (1) Elementary Education, and (1) Accounting. These students come from poor families who cannot afford to go to college. Their parents cannot express in words how grateful they are of the support given to them.
We welcome two new incoming college scholars for the year 2015-2016 namely Kathleen Levanta who is taking up Elementary Education and Rosette Yasol a major in Bachelor of Science in Social Welfare.
