Iloilo City fetes brilliant Uswag scholars

Uswag scholars with Mayor Jerry Trenas

Mayor Jerry P. Treñas cited 45 USWAG scholars who have completed their studies this year with Latin Honors.

The City Government has produced 33 cum laudes, 11 magna cum laudes, and 1 summa cum laude, each receiving cash rewards and certificates.

“As the Father of Iloilo City, I am extremely proud of our brilliant USWAG SCHOLARS for their outstanding academic achievements! With 33 Cum Laude, 12 Magna Cum Laude, and 1 Summa Cum Laude, these scholars are shining examples of excellence and dedication. Your hard work and success inspire us all,” said Treñas.

Mayor Treñas believes that there is no substitute for formal education, which is why he encourages everyone to finish a degree because it’s easier to find a decent job if you have a diploma.

The USWAG SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM is part of Iloilo City’s W.H.E.E.L.S. roadmap (Welfare, Health, Environment, Education, Livelihood, Sustainability) under Education.

Treñas started this program in 2010 that eventually created a roster of professionals in various fields to help build a better nation. The program has helped thousands of young Ilonggos continue their studies and achieve their dreams and ambitions.

The initiative has helped thousands of indigent city residents as recipients who availed of scholarships for deserving students to finish college despite poverty.

Anybody, despite of his/her political orientation and preference, is welcome to be part of the USWAG Scholarship Program. Residents of Iloilo City who are Senior High School Graduates, High School Graduates under old Department of Education (DepEd) curriculum, or already in College Level may avail of the scholarship.
