Scholarship Programs

Lifeline Assistance for Neighbors In-need
        (L.A.N.I.) Scholarship Program

 

 

Mayor Ma. Laarni Cayetano committed that under her leadership, all Taguigeños are special and all should be given fair opportunity to study, find work, and have a brighter future. (“Lahat ng Taguigeno ay VIP at walang maiiwanan. Lahat may oportunidad.”) She also believes that education is a crucial key to social progress and human development. Hence, the comprehensive Taguig City Scholarship Program was established under the Lifeline Assistance for Neighbors In-need (L.A.N.I.) Program.

Taguig City’s L.A.N.I. Scholarship Program was established under City Ordinance Number 9, Series of 2011 and the issuance of the implementing guidelines under EO 2011-11 with an initial budget of P100 Million. The Program was triggered by 3 key factors:

  • Statistics showing that in the Philippines, of every 100 pupils that enters Grade 1, only around 65 finishes Grade 6, only 58 proceeds to high school, with only 42 graduating. Of the high school graduates, only 23 will enter college and only around 12 or 14 will eventually graduate. The Mayor wants complete access to basic education, and to significantly improve both the quantity and quality of our graduates, especially of our college graduates;
  • A Taguig survey in 2009 showing that education and scholarship were among the Top 7 concerns of the residents; and
  • The fact that Mayor Lani was a scholar and a working student in college. Through this Program, she can reach out and provide scholarships to thousands, who, some day may become the leaders of this City, and perhaps the country.

 

BASIC QUALIFICATION CRITERIA FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM:

  1. Bona fide resident of Taguig City for at least 3 years immediately preceding the application. Must be a registered voter of the City if 18 years or older, and with at least one of the parents also a registered voter of the city.
  2. Of good moral character both in paper and in deeds.
  3. Determined to finish the course or pass the bar/board examination
  4. Committed to love and serve Taguig City
