Shopping for Philippine College Scholarships

One of the realities of life is that bright students don’t always have the money to pay for the education they need.  In older times, students would simply drop out of school and work to earn the money for tuition.  Nowadays, scholarships have helped ease the financial burden on financially indisposed but deserving pupils.

While most learning institutions offer scholarships to and other forms of financial assistance, it’s good to have a lot of options laid out on the table.  Here is a short list of the many different sources you can go to for financial aid.

Philanthropists for Education

Believe me, there are still good people out there who wish to see children go on to higher educational levels.  It’s with this in mind that they’ve set up college scholarship funds.  One such example is the JCAP College Scholarship Fund masterminded by Josefina Jayme Card.  Take a look at her official website for more juicy details.

Philanthropists like Mrs. Card aren’t the only ones offering aid; well-meaning companies also want a piece of the action, too.  Companies such as Fujitsu Philippines, Incorporated, also offer their own college scholarship grants.  Check out the details right here.

The Power of Synergy

There are times when you can do more good to others by combining efforts and resources.  For example, Metrobank and Pacific Paint (aka Boysen) have joined forces to provide their own college scholarship fund.  Get more details about their alliance here or call (63-2) 857-5525 or 898-8856 for more information.

Likewise, universities sometimes ally themselves with foundations to provide additional help for students over and above the run-of-the-mill scholarship.  For example, Ford Foundation and Ateneo de Manila University have joined forces to bring you Pathways to Higher Education.  Check this site out for a more in-depth view.

Governance and Brotherhood

Not to be outdone by private individuals and institutions, the Philippine government also offers its own form of financial aid.  The thing to note here is that there are scholarships for vocational college education as well as the more traditional higher learning.  Check out this huge list the government has to offer.

Interestingly enough, fraternities and sororities are also in on the financial aid bandwagon.  For instance, the Phi Beta Epsilon Fraternity has established an organization for helping underprivileged students.  For more on the history of the organization and the requirements for availing of financial aid, check out this webpage and this one as well.

Other Online Resources

The short list of scholarship resources above barely scratches the tip of the financial assistance iceberg.  If you’d like to browse around for more options, you may want to survey this University of the Philippines’ webpage, Filipinoscholar.com, Filipinolinks.com or even Schoogle.ph for additional avenues and ideas.

The Good Book says to “seek and ye shall find.”  If you take the time to look around for help in paying for your college education, chances are someone, somewhere will give it to you.  All you need to do next is to ask.
