    Great scholarship program initiated by the government sector in the Philippines. It’s a big privilege for incoming college students who deserved that scholarship programmed. I am hoping that the sectors will be created another scholarship programmed for very poor students who didn’t afford internet access, gadgets, books and school supplies.????????
