Taguig increases allowance of city scholars

Taguig City has increased the allowances of Lifeline Assistance for Neighbors In-need (LANI) scholars, a big morale booster to these adolescents who hit the books ever so frequently, Mayor Lani Cayetano announced on Monday.

The mayor said Basic, State Universities and Colleges (SUCs)/Local Colleges and Universities (LCUs); and Basic Plus scholarship types will now receive P15,000 and P20,000, respectively, each set of students receiving a whopping P5,000-increase per school year.

“We hope that through this, many of them will graduate and finish with flying colors. Because with excellence among our constituents, we may truly think big, dream big not just now but especially in the years to come,” Cayetano said.

Last Thursday (July 13), a total of 1,293 LANI scholars were the first to experience the upgraded educational assistance after they received their allowance during the first batch of LANI scholarship allowance distribution for this semester at the Taguig City University (TCU) Auditorium.

Every semester, the city distributes scholarship allowances to three batches of scholars usually composed of around 13,000 students, under the program, which was pioneered in 2011 with an initial budget of P100-million.
