Around 5,000 Taguig City University scholar students have received their financial assistance from the city government this semester.
The students received their allowance ranging from P5,000 to P10,000 depending on their semestral weighted average.
The scholars practiced precautionary measures set by the city government such as wearing of face mask and face shield, observing one meter physical distancing, bringing of alcohol and hand-sanitizer for personal sanitation, and avoid unnecessary conversation during the distribution of allowance.
Scholars were divided into five- or six-time clusters and were advised to arrive 15 minutes prior to their time slot, so they may be accommodated promptly as well as to avoid congestion and mass gathering.
Ordinance No. 08, Series of 2019 provides that all TCU students would receive at least P5,000 in educational assistance every semester.
An interested TCU student can qualify for the scholarship program if he/she is a bonafide resident of Taguig for at least three years immediately preceding the application; of good moral character; a duly registered voter of the city if the applicant is already 18 years of age and, if not, at least one of his/her parents is a duly registered voter.
For the merit incentive, the Registrar’s Office of TCU will provide the list of regular college students with qualified GWA at the end and before the start of each semester.
The applicants for both grants will be evaluated by the Screening Committee created and authorized by the City Mayor.
