BENECO offers scholarship grants starting SY 2019-2020
by Jane B. Cadalig

Benguet Electric Cooperative will offer scholarship grants to qualified beneficiaries of member-owner-consumers (MCOs) starting school year 2019-2020.

The National Electrification Administration has approved Beneco’s educational assistance policy, which was adopted by the coop’s board of directors in April last year.

Those who can qualify for the educational assistance are beneficiaries of MCOs whose average monthly electricity consumption does not exceed 100 kilowatt-hours.

Under the guidelines, Beneco will allot an annual budget for the educational assistance, which will be equally divided among the 11 districts in Baguio and Benguet.

The number of beneficiaries per district will be limited to the budget allotted in each district.

Qualified beneficiaries will be entitled to P12,000 per year if they are enrolled in private universities or colleges and P5,000 a year if they are enrolled in state colleges or universities.

The educational assistance will be subject to renewal every semester for a maximum of eight semesters for four-year courses and 10 semesters for five-year courses.

Those enrolled in colleges or universities that follow a tri-semester calendar are allowed a maximum renewal for nine semesters.

To be entitled to the renewal of the educational assistance, the beneficiaries must present to the Beneco Institutional Services Department (ISD) copies of their official grades every semester. They must not incur any failing grades and dropped subjects.

They must also present proofs of payment of their tuition and other fees issued by the school, where they are officially enrolled in.

Beneficiaries may transfer to other schools, but only after they have sought permission from the selection committee of the Beneco educational assistance program. Their failure to secure permission from the latter can be a ground for their disqualification from the program.

All scholars will also have their on-the-job training with Beneco, except those enrolled in courses that are no related to the business of Beneco, such as Agriculture, Nursing, and Hotel and Restaurant Management, among other degrees.

They will also have the opportunity to be employed with Beneco for one year if there are vacant positions at the electric cooperative.

Applicants can file their interest to avail themselves of the educational assistance to the Beneco ISD or submit their application to the director of their district.

All applicants will be pre-screened if they are qualified, pursuant to the guidelines. Those who will be pre-qualified will undergo written and oral examinations. If selected, they will sign a contract with Beneco to embody their obligations.

Applicants must be Filipino citizens, not more than 25 years old, and of good moral character.

They must submit birth certificate, health certificate with drug test results issued by the city or municipal health officer or a private doctor, certificate of indigency issued by the barangay, and barangay or police clearance.
