Re-electionist Antipolo City mayor Casimiro “Jun” Yñares III has released a total of P100 million in scholarship funds to 4,000 underprivileged college students this year.
Of the P100 million, P49 million was allotted for the tuition fees and allowances of “Iskolar ng Antipolo” (INA) students, each receiving P40,000 to P360,000 within four years.
The rest were set aside for related programs such as the Antipolo City Scholarship Program (ACSP), Working Student Scholarship Program, Student Assistance Program (SAP), Educational Program (EAP), SPED/PWD Scholarship Program and OFW/Dependent Scholarship Program.
Yñares said the scholarship programs are not exclusive to college students alone.
“The city also extends financial assistance to students taking up masteral and doctoral degree ranging from P40,000 and up,” he pointed out.
The city also provides P10,000 each for reviewers of various licensure examinations while P15,000 for Thesis Writing of the teaching and non-teaching personnel of Department of Education (DepED) as well.
Moreover, the Antipolo mayor said the city government also allotted P48 million to Antipolo Institute of Technology (AiTECH) scholars for their full scholarship for four years, including miscellaneous fees, uniforms, books, transportation and dormitory.
Yñares is running for re-election under the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) against former ally vice mayor Reynaldo “Puto” Leyva of the Liberal Party.
