52 students, teachers get scholarships from Navotas LGU


Fifty-two students and teachers have been named recipients of the Navotas city government’s scholarship program for school year 2020-2021.

This year’s academic scholars included 30 incoming high school freshmen, 15 incoming freshmen of Navotas Polytechnic College (NPC), two incoming freshmen of any college or university, and five teachers seeking higher education.

The city government gives high school scholars P18,000 per academic year for book, transportation and food allowance.

NPC scholars get P22,000 per academic year for tuition, book, transportation and food allowance. Scholars of other colleges or universities are given P262,000 for the same.

“We support Navoteños who persevere in their studies so they could fulfill their potential and help their family and community in the future,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

“Despite the health crisis we are facing, we want our students, as well as our teachers, to continue learning and pursue their dreams. Let us not allow this pandemic to hinder them from achieving their aspirations in life,” he added.

Aside from academic scholarship, the city government also offers scholarships to students who excel in sports and in arts, and to children or relatives of the Top Ten Outstanding Fisherfolk.
