A Cast of 57 qualified and deserving students will enjoy full scholarship this year from the Blessed Association of Retired Persons Foundation, Inc. or BARP in partnership with a core of benefactors.

This was announced by BARP’s president-CEO Prof. Federico Balanag early this week while acknowledging with deep gratitude and appreciation the kind hearted support of sponsors.

For school year 2011-2012 a new group of 24 student beneficiaries are enrolled in different college courses at the Benguet State University (BSU), at La Trinidad, Benguet, courtesy of Rep. Emmeline Aglipay of the DIWA Party List.

Aglipay together with Balanag and Juliet Bagano, chairperson of the BARP students scholarship committee will present the scholarship certificates to the students during the foundation’s general assembly set at the Burnham Athletic Oval Bleechers on May 28 this month. The lady lawmaker is also the guest of honor and speaker for the occasion.

In consonance with the provision of the scholarship endeavor each student will receive at least P5,000 for miscellaneous expense per semester aside from enjoying full payment of their tuition fees.

In related development, a group of ten students are also under the foundation’s scholarship offering for the incoming schoolyear sponsored by Baguio Rep. Bernardo Vergara and Mauricio Domogan's Educational Assistance Program. The names of the successful applicants from the list submitted by the BARP will be known next week.

The scholars are either children or grandchildren of bonafide members of the BARP foundation with good standing according to Prof. Balanag.

The first batch of 24 academic scholars under the foundation’s sponsorship started last year. They are enjoying their educational benefits at the University of Baguio (UB), University of the Cordilleras (UC), BSU or at the Data Center. One graduated from National Institute of Information Technology (NIIT) last year after finishing a computer technology course.

Another student who is enrolled at BSU for a mass communication degree is sponsored by BARP member Evangeline Ariaga. – Nars Padilla
