ARTICLE NO. 153 OF 2022
TITLE: <Cash Incentives For Academic Scholars, No More?>
DATE OF PUBLISHING: <NOVEMBER 27, 2022>

It is such a major achievement to be distinguished as a "scholar."

Every students have the freedom to apply in such scholarship programs but not everyone were given a chance to be qualified. Therefore, it's a MUST to treasure this kind of opportunity. Why? Scholarship program/s won't always be open for application every day. So, it is indeed better to grab the chance & do our very best. Do good during the application and take the journey of being a scholar in a serious manner.


As a struggling college student, I'm doing my very best in order to secure the scholarship programs that I am qualified at.

How? By excelling in academics and attaining good to high numerical grades. How does it benefit me?

" ... if I do good academically, rest assured that I'll still be able to renew my scholarships on the following semesters until I finish my degree. Additionally, I can use this in my advantage upon applying to other programs."

It's similar to the idiomatic expression of: "I'm hitting two birds with one stone" which means achieving two things by executing a single action.

In my recent article entitled as: "My Pending Scholarship Allowance | "PhP 25,300.00 ($441.81)"", I had briefly narrated my journey in acquiring multiple scholarships.

Aside from the efforts & energy that I had invested during the application, I also spent untraceable amount of money which comes from my own pockets. Not to brag but yes, sariling sikap talaga lahat.

And, what did I get in return? Well, I already reaped off multiple big outcomes & was continuously harvesting its sprouting fruits. 🤎

One out of my four (4) scholarships, I have already claimed thousands worth of allowance. As of now, I am currently waiting for the other 3/4 scholarship allowances. "Unclaimed allowances" are as follows:

  • PhP 20,000.00 ($349.29) - Vicente B. Bello Scholarship Program;

  • PhP 2800.00 ($48.90) - Academic Scholarship; and

  • PhP 2500.00 ($43.66) - City Government Scholarship.

Summing up these numbers, its approximately around twenty-five thousand pesos. Gosh! It's undeniably a big amount.

However, I have been consistently thinking of this certain question: "When can I receive my cash incentive for being a Academic Scholar [specifically, College Scholar] last second semester of A.Y. 2021-2022 (based on grades obtained from 1st semester of AY 2021-2022)"?

In order to be distinguished as an "Academic Scholar" we, students must fulfill any of the following GWA shown below:

  • President's Lister - 1.24 and below;

  • University Scholar - 1.25 to 1.44;

  • College Scholar - 1.45 to 1.74; and

  • Dean's Lister - 1.75 to 2.00

Upon attaining any of these GWA in every semester, we [University Scholars and College Scholars] will receive cash incentives by which the amount depends on the units we have taken. On the contrary, Dean's Listers don't receive incentives aside from the distinction. Meanwhile, I ain't sure if President's Listers receives such amount of cash.

Supposedly, we should receive the cash incentives for the second semester of A.Y. 2021-2022 around October. Apparently, it didn't go that way. We're near to December but still, the incentives weren't yet disposed.

We are still hoping for it to be dispersed anytime soon, not until the CLSU Supreme Student Council posted an update last night with a headline of:

UPDATE: CLSU to release only 34% of institutional scholars’ incentives for 2nd semester of AY 2021-2022, according to the university’s Financial Management Services.

Instead of distributing 100% of the cash incentives to every institutional scholars, the university will just be giving it out to only 34% of the overall count of scholars.

The reason for cutting out the benefits? ... Conflict in the allocation of the budget.

The university needs ₱18,242,985.00 to cater every scholars. Unfortunately, only ₱6,270,000.00 were constituted. Hence, more than 60% of the scholars won't no longer receive their supposedly incentives.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

Well, the reason is clearly understandable. However, I am just hoping that I'll be listed in that 34%. That cash incentive is surely a big help to me, financially. Especially now that I am really in need of money for my F2F budget. Please, G! Allow me to receive this incentive. *crossed fingers*
