Each year the College of Education at the Eastern Visayas State University (EVSU) enrolls over 800 future educators. But each year some students suspend or terminate studies due to financial hardship.
Higher education in the Philippines is relatively inexpensive compared to the United States (semester tuition costs USD $76-$200). But this amount is a challenge for families who earn less than $100 per month.
Students enrolled in the College of Education at EVSU. Priority will be given to students nearing graduation.
1. No failing or incomplete grades in any course
2. Minimum 2.2 GPA [in the Philippines, GPA ranges from 1.0 (highest) -4.0 (lowest)]
3. Not a recipient of any other concurrent scholarship
4. Financially needy (applicants must furnish a tax exemption note from the Bureau of Internal Revenue or signed certification from parish priest establishing estimated annual family income)
Awardees receive a credit for tuition fee and enrollment fee. The amount varies depending on load, but the scholarship will not exceed Php5,000 (USD $116). Students will still be required to pay Cultural Fee, Athletic Fee, Dental Fee, Insurance Fee, Library Fee, Registration Fee, School Organization Fee, Student Activities Fee, Guidance Fee, Internet Fee, Medical Fee, Student Council Fee, Student Development Fee, and Trust Fund.
Complete the Scholarship Application and submit it to Ruel Advincula in the College of Education office.
Awardees will attend an orientation at the beginning of the semester, honoring their achievements and encouraging community service and activism.
At the request of students at the Eastern Visayas State University, Peace Corps volunteer Mark Fullmer established this scholarship in 2011 under the guidance of Rosario E. Garcia, Dean, College of Education, and Ruel C. Advincula, Head, Related & Professional Courses.
