TO AID financially unstable students, the Faculty of Arts and Letters Student Council (ABSC) set up a scholarship program funded by proceeds from fund-raising events.

According to ABSC president Milfen Alvarado, the ABSC Educational Assistance Program aims to help financially unstable but deserving students to pursue their studies.

“I think that it is the best that we could do for the students who (really deserve) to stay in college.” he said.

As of mid-April, Alvarado said the Artlets Student Council have gathered more than P50,000 from the concert series, “Silber”, which was held March 9. Alvarado said the Council also intends to ask alumni to help finance the scholars.

Under the program, each scholar will receive P10,000 per semester, Alvarado said.

Other scholarship programs in the University are: the Santo Tomas Scholarship, given to students with excellent academic performance; the Santo Domingo de Guzman Scholarship, given to students who excel in the arts and sports; the San Lorenzo Ruiz Scholarship, given to students who work for UST’s offices in return; and the San Martin de Porres Scholarship, extended to students in need of financial assistance. The Office for Student Affairs oversee the grant of these scholarships. Rafael Mejia
