OWWA fetes graduate scholars
by Carlito C. Dar / PIA

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration recognized its graduate scholars and assured its continuing support for the fulfillment of their dreams and aspirations in a simple ceremony in Baguio City on Aug. 3.

Recognized were 15 grantees of the OFW Dependent Scholarship Program (ODSP) composed for school year 2018-2019 and two for 2017-2018; 12 scholars under the Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP), and four beneficiaries of the Education and Livelihood Assistance Program (ELAP).

OWWA National Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac, assisted by OWWA-Cordillera Director Manuela Peña, spearheaded the awarding of certificates of recognition to the graduates.

Under the ODSP, qualified dependents of OWWA active member OFW whose salary is not more than $600 or its peso equivalent are given P20,000 educational assistance per school year.

The EDSP provides P60,000 per annum or P30,000 per semester to qualified OWWA scholars pursuing a four to five years baccalaureate course in any preferred college or university of the beneficiary.

The ELAP is an education and livelihood assistance for dependents of deceased member-OFW. For their education, OWWA provides P5,000; P8,000; and 10,000 assistance per school year for elementary, high school and college, respectively.

In behalf of the scholars, Shaira Ebreo, a cum laude graduate of Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education at Saint Louis University, thanked OWWA for the scholarship which aside from enabling her to pursue her education also led her to meet the people who helped her become a more responsible individual.
