BALANGA CITY, Bataan – The Sangguniang Panlalawigan headed by Vice Governor Cris Garcia is fully backing the scholarship program for teachers and capitol employees.
The provincial board passed unanimously on Monday two resolutions respectively authorizing Gov. Abet Garcia to enter into a memorandum of agreement with the Bataan Peninsula State University for the Gurong Iskolar ng Bataan and Post Graduate Scholarship Program.
Board Member Rey Ibe, SP chairman of the committee on education, motioned for the approval of the two resolutions.
“The Gurong Iskolar ng Bataan has been implemented by the provincial government since 2010, but every 3 years a memorandum of agreement must be executed”, explained the vice governor.
The scholarship is for masteral and doctoral degree. It is open for teachers both from public and private schools.
In the program, the tuition fee is paid by the provincial government while the miscellaneous fee is shouldered by the university.
A scholar has to maintain 1.5 average grade. “I was able to talk to a top official of the university, and he said that the reason for grade requirement is for BPSU Graduate School to maintain its good academic standing if not improve”, she said.
The Post Graduate Scholarship Program to benefit capitol employees is a new initiative of the provincial government.
“The governor wants capitol employees to be equipped with knowledge to efficiently perform their duties”, she further said.
Before becoming vice governor, Garcia was the original coordinator of the Iskolar ng Bataan and Gurong Iskolar ng Bataan. She now serves as adviser of the scholarship program.
