The Cebu City Council ratified a memorandum of agreement (MOA) between the local government and 16 schools, which includes University of Cebu, involved in the city's scholarship program. City Councilor Alvin Dizon, who sponsored the resolution, said Vice Mayor Augustus “Joy” Young wanted the the MOA ratified to strengthen the agreement's effectivity and so that schools would not have problems collecting the P10,000 financial aid given to each scholar.

“We need to ratify it, to strengthen the partnership, since the MOA was done during the previous administration,” Dizon said. Dizon said the schools have not yet collected payment since the scholarship program has just started. The city government was anticipating the schools to collect the scholar's tuition by the end of the first semester this October.

However, Dizon said only 60 to 70 percent of high school graduates or 3,000 of the 5,000 students in Cebu City availed of the city government’s program. Under the program, Cebu City high school graduates will receive P10,000 financial assistance to encourage them to enrol in college. Dizon said some students didn't avail of the program because their parents couldn't affort to pay the balance of tuition in various schools. Although rates vary, tuition for a full semester load in a private colleges is about P15,000 to P25,000.
