Taguig City University students may now receive a scholarship allowance and merit incentives every semester thanks to a newly approved city ordinance

City Ordinance No. 08, Series of 2019, provides that all students at Taguig City University will receive P5,000 in educational assistance every semester.

“We are shocked. We are already on 100-percent full scholarship. We don’t pay any tuition. Now we will also receive an allowance every semester,” said beneficiary Dominic H. Dalaguit, a freshman taking up Entrepreneurial Management.

Edralyn A. Hernani, a senior Psychology student, shared the sentiment, saying “I am so happy. This is a big help to my parents in terms of school expenses.”

Hernani said she planned to use the financial assistance to finish her thesis.

Still under the ordinance, the cream of the crop at Taguig City University can receive an additional P5,000 every semester.

The merit incentive will go to students who garner a general weighted average of at least 1.75 with no failing or incomplete marks or dropped subjects in the preceding semester.

“While these students are already considered full scholars of the city since the local government shoulders all their tuition fees and miscellaneous expenses, we are fully aware that they still have other education-related expenses to deal with, hence, this ordinance that will encourage them to continue pursuing their dreams,” said Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano.

The ordinance took effect in the second semester of the current school year 2018-2019.
