Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda announced that the number of scholars supported by the provincial government has grown from 8,258 last year to 14,113 for the first semester this year.

The government’s Educational Financial Assistance program has also increased, he said.

“Tig-P4,000 kada semester na po ang kanilang tinanggap simula Lunes, June 20, mula P3,000. Sa kabuuan po ay P56.452 million ang ibinigay ng Capitol sa kanila mula P24.774 million,” the governor said.

Pineda made the announcement during the distribution of financial subsidies at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center on Monday.

“Ang makatapos sila ng pag-aaral para magkatrabaho at makatulong sa kanilang pamilya ay tulong din nila sa pag-unlad ng Pampanga,” Pineda said.

The governor expressed his gratitude to his mother, Vice Governor Lilia Pineda and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for approving his budget requests for education.
