TO FURTHER provide educational opportunities to Ilocano youth, the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) will be offering ‘Sirib’ athletic scholarship starting school year 2017-2018. Through the approved Provincial Ordinance No. 005-2016 sponsored by senior Sangguniang Panlalawigan member Matthew M. Manotoc, an estimated 50 athletes will be added to the list of PGIN’s scholarship program beneficiaries. Under the program, underprivileged yet deserving youth athletes will be able to continue their studies until college while enhancing their skills and talents in their respective fields. Elementary and high school scholars will be given 6,000 per school year while college scholars will receive 31,300.00 for two semesters. Beneficiaries will be chosen based on their athletic performances, need for financial assistance, and willingness to finish studies.
