It is our honor to have a scholarship granted by other countries, but usually the one who are enjoying this privileges were in the Central Luzon.
Kindly give us also one in the provinces.

Yes Mam,

You are right, mostly the benefited of this project are coming from Luzon. That will only happen if the regional director will not insist on this oppurtunity during conference. Normally, Directors do not show interest. Like wise Superintendent and many Division.
