The Sorsogon provincial government has provided financial assistance to more than 1,700 college students in the province.

The said assistance is part of the Education Financial Assistance Program of the Capitol this year.

“Ang mga mag-aaral sa kolehiyo na mula sa iba’t ibang bayan at lungsod ng Sorsogon ay kabilang na sa pangalawang batch na pinagkalooban ng Php2000 financial assistance mula ng nilunsad ang naturang programa,” said the Capitol.

“Sa ilalim ng Provincial Ordinance 32-2019 ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan mabibigyan ng tulong pinansiyal ang mga mag-aaral na hindi napabilang sa Grant-in-Aid o Tertiary Education Subsidy Program ng RA 10931 o mas kilala sa Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Law,” it added.

The provincial government will also provide financial assistance to students who want to pursue Pharmacy, Nursing, Medical Technology and Radiologic Technology in any school in Bicol Region.

Governor Chiz Escudero said that helping students is also way to secure their future so that by then, they will also give back to those who are in need.

“Bukod dito, isa ring tinitingnan ng gobernador na dapat pagtuunan ng pansin ay ang mga mag-aaral na nais makabuo ng mga computer software na makatutulong naman sa planong digitization ng lalawigan ng Sorsogon,” the Capitol said.

“Inaasahang mas marami pang matutulungang mag-aaral sa pagpapatuloy ng naturang programa sa mga susunod na taon,” it added.
