GSIS offers scholarship to relatives of members

The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), in partnership with STI, is offering a 20 percent scholarship grant on tuition and laboratory fees this coming school year.

Now on its second year, the tie-up called GSIS-STI Grants, is open to all qualified relatives of GSIS members and pensioners, who are going to enroll as incoming freshmen in any STI campus nationwide.

The educational assistance is extended up to the 6th civil degree of affinity and/or consanguinity which means that not only the children of GSIS members and pensioners can avail of the partial scholarship grant but also the relatives.

To avail of the partial scholarship grant, GSIS members and qualified relatives need to present to STI the GSIS eCard, subject to verification.

In addition to making quality education more affordable, the tie-up also aims to boost the employment rate in the country. This, as STI is also committed to procure the assistance of Global Resource for Outsourced Workers, Inc. (GROW), which in turn will provide assistance in securing employment for qualified relatives of GSIS who have successfully graduated from their courses in their chosen STI schools.

GROW, a POEA-licensed placement company, is a member of the STI Education Services Group.

It forms part of STI’s Enrollment-to-Employment system (E2E).

STI is a leading provider of Information Communications Technolo (ICT) and ICT-enhanced education.

It has a network of more than 100 campuses nationwide with academic programs in ICT, Business and Management, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Engineering and Healthcare.

GSIS members and qualified beneficiaries can continue to benefit from the 20 percent scholarship grant in the succeeding semesters until they have graduated from their chosen field, provided that they continue to meet the applicable minimum standards and qualifications stated on STI’s scholarship guidelines and student handbook.

“We want nothing more but to provide quality education to our children and job opportunities when they graduate from college. Now, our members, pensioners, and their dependents, are assured of that dream, with the help of STI,” GSIS president and general manager Winston F. Garcia said.The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), in partnership with STI, is offering a 20 percent scholarship grant on tuition and laboratory fees this coming school year.

He added the scholars under the PESFA program may choose from 13 strategic packages offered in some 19 private tekbok schools in the province.

“Since our programs in TESDA are multi-entry programs, training classes may start anytime of the year as long as the minimum number of scholars required is met,” he noted.

Benemerito further calls on and encourages qualified students grab this opportunity offered by the government to help the poor communities allotting some P3.6 million to finance the scholarship of deserving locals.

TESDA Sorsogon, meanwhile, has announced the Ladderized Education Program (LEP) Scholarship will soon be implemented in the province targeting some 70 students who are already enrolled in the ladderized courses at the Sorsogon State College (SSC) and Aemilianum College, Inc. (ACI), both located in Sorsogon City.

Meanwhile, TESDA Sorsogon was given a total of 2,652 scholarship slots with P24M budget for this year’s Pangulong Gloria Scholarship Program (PGSP).

Mariglo M. Makabuhay, TESDA-PGSP provincial coordinator, said scholars may opt from the 50 technical-vocational courses or special packages offered in various accredited private and public schools in the province.

She averred that since the PGSP’s implemented this year, TESDA has already recorded a total of 1,454 graduates, including the five overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who now have jobs overseas.

“We are presently gathering data from TESDA accredited schools and Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to find out the extent of success among our graduates, furthermore, as bases for the PGSP second phase of implementation in the province,” she said. (PIA Sorsogon)
