The Pasig City Council passed an ordinance to rename the city’s scholarship fund, craft new implementing rules and regulations and create a task force to oversee the program.

The city council yesterday voted unanimously to rename the fund into the Pasig City Scholarship Program from the Vicente Eusebio Scholarship Program, later on known as the VCE Scholarship Program, after the Eusebio patriarch, former mayor Vicente “Enteng” Eusebio.

Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, in signing the ordinance, said the scholarship will benefit thousands of the city’s indigent students.

He said the highest number of scholars in the city’s history was recorded this year, now totaling 13,000 students.

“This is history. Of all the ordinances being passed under my term, I was so very excited on this because this is for the betterment of our students,” Sotto said.

The mayor added that by 2020 they will raise the city’s budget for the scholarship program, so that more students, most especially poor but deserving students, can avail of free tuition.

“For next year, we will allocate P400 million for our scholarships as we target at least 16,000 students. We will expand the scholarship program so that more scholars will be given assistance,” he explained.
