Cebu City’s financially challenged high school graduates need not worry about tuition fees. The city government has kept its promise to provide them with scholarships. The city government yesterday signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with 14 partner universities, colleges and vocational schools in their scholarships program.

The MOA, which was signed at the office of Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña, states that the schools will accept all the city's scholars for one academic year. After this period, the student will be assessed for continued scholarship, vice mayor elect Augustus Joy Young, city consultant on education said. Young said that based on the MOA, the school can charge the city with a maximum amount of P10,000 for each student’s tuition.

Every student from the mountain barangays will be alloted P20,000 – P10,000 for their tuition and another P10,000 in allowances at P1,000 each month. Young said that he will still meet with the schools on the specifics of handing out the allowances. Vouchers had been given to Cebu City public high school graduates during their graduation, Young said. A voucher is presented to the partner school where the student wishes to be enrolled together with the school’s requirements for enrollment.

Even before the MOA signing yesterday, Young said about 2,000 high school graduates availed the program and enrolled in accredited schools. Some 800 students were enrolled in Cebu Technical University, least 700 in University of Cebu and about 300 in the Cebu Institute of Technology.
