OPAPP scholars get benefits at end of semester

by Larry Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (19 June) -- The Office on Presidential Assistant on Peace Process (OPAPP) now pays scholarship benefits at the end of the semester.

Program Coordinator Bing Haddac of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) said this decision was made after OPAPP discovered that some scholars drop from school after receiving their benefits.

Beneficiaries under the OPAPP-Commission on Higher Education(CHED) scholarship program get cash assistance of P5,000 per semester. Under the new ruling, they can claim their P5,000 stipend at the end of the semester upon submission of their enrollment forms, grades and official receipts of payments for the semester, Haddac said.

For school year 2010-2011, Haddac said there are 17 new beneficiaries of the program in the province enrolled in various colleges and universities. Five of the new scholars are applicants last year who were not accommodated because of limited slots.

The scholarship program has only 100 slots nationwide. Beneficiaries are accommodated on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Haddac called on the scholars to take seriously the assistance being provided saying many others are interested but their applications are disapproved.

Qualified beneficiaries under the scholarship program are direct kin of rebel returnees. The program is part of the Social Integration Program of government which assists rebels and their families transform to normal life. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
