Who can become scholarship providers?

Inquiries and letters of intent may be addressed to:
Dina C. Mendez
OIC, Public Affairs
Once the partnership is approved, the OPA contacts the University Committee on Scholarship and Office of Student Development and Services (OSDS) as Committee Secretariat about the scholarship requirements and slots for dissemination to the colleges and Information and Communications Technology (ICTO) so that students who need the financial aid could apply.
The colleges receive applications from interested students. Then it submits the applications to the OSDS, which creates a shortlist using the scholarship providers' criteria. This list is submitted to the Committee on Scholarship, which makes the final recommendation and submits it to the OPA. The OPA then coordinates the recommended scholars to the scholarship providers for their concurrence.
