When it rains, it pours.

Masbate Vice Governor Kaye Revil reaped another blessing as she bagged a “competitive” scholarship grant to learn more about federalism in Austria.

Vice Governor Revil said that she wanted to study the federal form of government to effectively help people understand its effects and benefits.

“On Federalism, your VG Kaye Revil signified intent to carefully study the subject matter as I do hope to engage in discourse intelligently & help enlighten our people as to its effects, benefits & the challenges that would come along with its implementation,” the vice governor said.

Revil was recommended by former Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel and PDP-Laban President and Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel for her application in the said scholarship grant.

“In this light, I have been recommended by Former Senate President Nene Pimentel & Senate President Koko Pimentel to apply for a competitive scholarship for the same & after some months of praying, we have been duly granted,” she said.

Revil will attend the “Winter School on Federalism and Governance in 2018 – Federalism in the Making” that will take place in Innsbruck on February 5 to 9 and in Bolzano/Bozen on February 12 to 16.

“Looking forward to absorb & learn as much from the experts who will be handling the classes for the same. In a class of 32 from all over the world (mostly lawyers w/LLM & PH.Ds), Masbate, Philippines we shall bring & mark our name,” she said.

The cost of tuition, accommodation as well as the travel expenses will be shouldered by Hanns Seidel Foundation.

“Thank you Hanns Seidel Foundation for the good news of my acceptance to your grant. Thank you SP Koko Pimentel for the recommendation. Now enroute to Austria. To God be all the glory,” she said.
