Davao Councilor Eyes Establishment Of City Scholarship Fund

Davao City Councilor Mabel Sunga Acosta is pushing for the creation of the Davao City Scholarship Fund in lieu of the Davao City College.

She said the proposal to put up a City College for Davao has not really moved. In the meantime, she said, "why don't we put up a Fund that will not only hold Davao City's money but international and other funding as well to provide scholarship for Dabawenyos?"

Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is already providing financial assistance to students in the elementary and high school level so I would like to focus this time on the tertiary or College level, she said.

Acosta said she is bent on formally creating the Scholarship Fund with strict guidelines so it can benefit academically gifted Dabawenyos who could not go to College for financial reasons. "This is not charity so those who will benefit from it are not only the poor but bright students," she said.
