OUR Scholarship – The Sure Way!
by Review Masters, the Philippines’ first Online UPCAT Review (OUR) provider
Vision: Creating equal opportunities for all students!
“Celebrating 10 Years of Helping Filipino Students from All Walks of Life”
Review Masters is known to giving full scholarship to academically excellent students especially to those at the lower-income bracket. Since it started the Classroom UPCAT Review in 2002, Review Masters has been collaborating with school administrators to choose the deserving beneficiaries of its scholarship program. For nine years, Review Masters has awarded more than a hundred scholarships to honor students and to financially-challenged as well.
Why we start OUR Scholarship – The Sure Way!
Because of the proliferation of review centers, not only in Metro Manila but also in far-flung provinces, the playing field called the UPCAT becomes skewed to those who can afford to pay the tuition fees for these review programs. It cannot be denied that students from public schools are now losing their “academic” edge, so to speak. Even those who graduated valedictorians and salutatorians from public schools cannot even make it to the premier university of the land. UP is becoming less and less “university for the masses” because of this hard fact. But Review Masters believe that these students equally deserve to be qualified, if given the opportunity to prepare “more” with “less” time. The potential of these students from public high schools to succeed in college is very high, but they need first to pass the UPCAT!
How our program works
Review Masters is giving away at least 4,000 scholarships to public high school students all over the Philippines this year. Yes, at least 4,000 since the Philippines has 4,422 public secondary schools, aside from the science high schools and the State Universities and Colleges –run high schools. Who are eligible to apply for OUR Scholarship – The Sure Way? Here’s a rundown of the criteria:
1.) A bona-fide third year high school student of a public school in the Philippines; and
2.) First or second honor as of School Year 2010-2011
Review Masters requires any applicant to submit a photo or scanned picture of a certificate that verifies criteria 1 and 2. The certificate should state the following and be signed by the principal:
This is to certify that (full name of student) is a bona-fide third year high school student of (full name of school, school address, school’s contact number) and the first (or second) honor of their batch as of school year 2010-2011.
