Immigration launches scholarship program for employees

Cebu Examiner

CEBU CITY – The Bureau of Immigration recently launched in Cebu the so-called “Handog Edukasyon” program that offers scholarship grants to dependents and siblings of local BI employees in five schools here.

The BI has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with University of Cebu, Southwestern University, AMA Computer College, Cebu Doctor’s University and the Cebu International Distance Education College for scholarship grants.

“The BI personnel are very grateful for this opportunity to ensure the future of our children,” said Immigration Commissioner Siegfried Mison, who was in Cebu recently. Cebu is the first province to implement the program. The BI also inked a similar accord with Emilio Aguinaldo College and Lyceum of the Philippines University for BI employees.

Mison said they are also eyeing the cities of Baguio and Davao for the same program.

He assured that the recipients of the scholarship grant will be chosen based on merit, while financial standing will merely be a second factor. He said the program is in line with BI’s 75th anniversary celebration which culminates in September. (MBCN, FC)
