The scholars were also thankful to the opportunities OWWA gave them.

“This scholarship helped me a lot, especially in my schooling and various expenses,” Ms. Getalado said. “In addition to this, it also helped in my mother’s financial burden when sending money back home to us. This scholarship is really a blessing to me.”
