Board Member Leoncio Ola is proposing to include law students of the Palawan State University (PSU) in the scholarship program of the provincial government, shouldering P10,000 each scholar every semester.
Ola said Tuesday that Bachelor of Law is one of the courses that require stable financial resources.
“Tingin ko naman wala namang problema dito, kung hindi tayo mabigyan ng P10,000 then maybe we can discuss with the governor up to P5,000. Magiging happy na rin ‘yan ang mga estudyante at least hindi sila nabigo,” Ola.
Currently, the provincial government is counting on 11 of its graduating medical student scholars this year to pass their licensure examination and to be assigned at the province’s Medicare hospitals.
The provincial government has also 81 medical scholars studying in different universities and colleges in the Philippines and accommodated 19 new applicants this coming school year. Each scholar has an allocation of P70,000 for every semester.
Records of the IHELP- Education Unit showed that there are 60,000 scholars studying in universities, and 17,000 taking up technical and vocational courses.
The provincial government’s educational assistance is under the Programang Pang-edukasyon Para sa Palaweño (PPP) as part of the Infrastructure- Health, Education, Livelihood, and Protection of the Environment (I-HELP) program.
