72 OWWA Scholarship Still Open

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration 6 is still looking for 72 scholars under its OFW Dependents Scholarship Program (OFWDSP).

Qualified to the scholarship are incoming college freshmen of OFW parents who have a monthly salary of not more than US$400.

“We would like to give opportunity to the children of our OFWs whose salary is within the bracket to pursue their college education through this scholarship,” said Director Ron Lionel Bartolome of OWWA 6.

Successful applicants to the program are entitled to a maximum of P20,000.00  financial assistance per school year for a baccalaureate or associate degree in a state college or university.

Bartolome said 19 incoming first year college dependents of OFWs in the region also passed the examination given by the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute last year and qualified as scholars under the Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP) this school year 2014 – 2015.

The new EDSP scholars will receive a maximum education assistance of P60,000.00 per school year for a four-to-five year baccalaureate course in any college or university of their choice.

Interested dependents who want to avail of the scholarship may visit the OWWA 6 Office at Robinsons Place Iloilo City or call telephone number (033) 509-1075 for more details.
