Pagpugay Poster for XU

 

Through the Bank of the Philippine Islands Foundation (BPIF), BPI recognizes the great contribution of the medical front liners in the fight against COVID-19. To honor their heroic efforts, BPIF offers PAGPUGAY, a scholarship fund program to support the next of kin of the medical front liners who passed away in the line of duty against COVID-19.

Ten (10) scholars will be chosen by BPIF in 2020, to be evaluated for annual renewal. Should a slot be available due to graduation or non-renewal, BPIF reserves the right to open the program to new applicants to fill in the available slots.

Each scholar will be provided a maximum of P100,000 scholarship fund per academic year to provide financial assistance to cover tuition fees and other miscellaneous expenses paid directly to BPIF’s partner school.

The financial assistance shall only cover school fees for regular school year / semester / trimester and shall not, in any event, cover school fees arising out of or relating to the summer term, unless the summer term is mandatory based on the course curriculum.
