The Cebu provincial government has extended the deadline for its Ang Paglaum scholarship program from March 31 until today, April 7.

Vice Governor Agnes Magpale said they decided to extend the application period after receiving requests from several town mayors.

For this year, Magpale said they will be accepting 300–320 new scholars under the program, which will cater to the poorest of the poor.

“I-review namo ang ilang case history kay mangayo man ta ana sa social worker sa ilang barangay (kon tinuod ba gyud silang pobre) (We will review their case history which we will request from the social worker of their barangay [to see if they are really poor]),” Magpale said.

The Ang Paglaum scholarship program was launched by the Cebu provincial government last year with the aim to uplift the lives of the Cebuanos.

The project, which is in partnership with state colleges and universities, will cover the differently abled, the marginalized, the less-fortunate and the poor but deserving students, including children of drug surrenderers.

Each beneficiary will receive P10,000 for tuition and miscellaneous fees as well as P1,500 monthly subsistence allowance.

Currently, Magpale said there are already 157 scholars under the program who will continue next school year after they have passed the previous semester.

According to Magpale, the program’s budget for this year is P10 million and that as of March 31, around 600 applications have already been received.
