The Pres. Carlos P. Garcia Scholarship Board convened today to approve increase in scholarship benefits for CPG scholars.

Founded by Gov. Edgar Chatto when he was vice governor, interested students undergo a merit system qualification process in order to be accepted and scholars can go to their choice of school.

The scholarship is even open to private donors who would like to participate in educating Boholanos in order to also increase in beneficiaries.

Aside from the CPG scholarship program, the Provincial Government also has a subsidy program for qualified students, and the extended summer job program.
