Scholarship program ng OWWA pinalawak

MAGANDANG araw po sa Aksyon Line. Palagi po kaming nagbabasa ng inyong pahayagan at batid naman na marami kayong natutulungan.

Isa pong OFW sa Saudi Arabia ang aking asawa. Siya po ay nagtatrabaho sa isang ahensiya ng government doon. Maayos naman ang kanyang sweldo pero nagigipit pa rin kami dahil mayroon kaming limang anak na puro mga babae at nag-aaral pa.

Nabalitaan ko po ang tungkol sa scholarship ng OWWA. Gusto po sanang itanong kung kahit matagal nang nag-open ang classes ay maaari pa bang makapasok sa scholarship program ang anak ko. Gusto ko rin sana na malaman ang mga requirements. Sana ay masagot ninyo ang aking katanungan.

More power and God Bless!

REPLY: On going ang scholarship program ng OWWA at mas pinalawak ang programa para matulungan ang mga anak ng mga OFWs na maging scholar ng OWWA.

Pinapayagan na kahit nasa kalagitnaan na ng pag-aaral sa kolehiyo ay mapabilang sa scholar ng OWWA kumpara noon na dapat magsimula sa freshman college ang nagnanais na makakuha ng scholarshio grant ng OWWA.

Bukod dito pinalawak din ang coverage na mula sa $400 sa ngayon ay ginawa na itong $600 na pwedeng ma cover para sa lower income OFWs.

Bagaman may quota na 2,500 students per year subaliā€™t hindi naman mapako sa nasabing bilang ng mga scholars lalo na kung mataas ang demand.

Mas pinadali rin ang pagproseso at sa loob lamang ng tatlong linggo ay maaari nang malaman kung naaprubahan para mapabilang sa OWWA scholars.

Must be a child of a married OWWA member or brother/sister of an unmarried OWWA member
