Pasig City kids will have brighter futures if Vico Sotto’s plans all fall into place.

The millennial mayor hit another milestone for the city as he seeks to expand benefits given to residents, which include scholarships for poor families.

“Mula 12,000 scholars nung 2019, nasa 20,000 NA ANG PASIG CITY SCHOLARS NATIN PARA SA TAONG 2022. Our goal: 30,000 scholars per year by year 2025,” the politiko said.

Now, a quick explainer for ranting parents.

“FrequentlyAskedQ: Bat di nakasama ang anak ko sa academic scholarship, eh 90+ naman ang average niya? Basta pasok sa income bracket, PATAASAN po ang mga aplikante ng grade average,” Sotto said, explaining that there’s a merit-based system for choosing recipients.
