The Office of the Scholarship Coordinator, headed by Ms. Charisse Faith S. Fermil, is currently facilitating the Tertiary Education Subsidy fund’s release to the grantees of the first semester of the academic calendar year 2019-2020. The TES release started on August 4, 2020, at the SCC Fellowship Center and will end on August 21, 2020.

        The 1,325 TES recipients from SCC were set to receive their subsidy by schedule in observance of the health and safety guidelines. A daily maximum of 100 grantees accompanied by one parent/guardian are allowed to attend the orientation and to claim their financial assistance.

        The Scholarship Coordinator’s office made sure that the grantees are safe and well- assisted during their schedule. The office also addressed some concerns and queries during the orientation. As of now, the release of funds is on-going. Some of the grantees expressed how grateful they are with the financial assistance granted to them by the government despite the challenges the country faces due to the COVID19 pandemic.
