PPSS scholars attend orientation

ALABEL, Sarangani (February 2, 2021) – Some 90 newly-qualified scholars of the Paaral Para Sa Sarangan (PPSS) scholarship program attend their orientation on February 1 at the Capitol gym. The new scholars were selected after passing the qualification requirements including an evaluation, academic ranking, and an interview. These scholars belong to the marginalized and depressed families in Sarangani who have the eagerness to pursue their studies and excel in their selected fields. For the school year 2020-2021, there was a total of 800 entrants who underwent a series of qualification processes. Each PPSS scholar will receive a monthly allowance amounting to P2,000 for the entire school year. Glenda Revaño, designated provincial Public Employment Service Office (PESO) manager, disclosed that “for the first half of this school year, may delay sa orientation as well as sa application ng ating scholars doon sa bangko because of the pandemic. For the first five months, naipon yung allowance ng ating students that is why we have to release ng isahan.” She added that despite the pandemic “we will still implement the program.” (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
