Student Scholarship Office

In fulfillment of its mission to be a resource for the Church and the Nation, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas extends financial assistance to deserving undergraduate and graduate students. The funds that mostly come from the general budget are supplemented by donations from agencies or foundations that support the program.

This financial assistance is a clear manifestation of the University's goal to provide deserving students access to Lasallian education.

Humble Beginnings

In 1988, there were only 10, today there are 1,676. It was May 21, 1988, during the Administrative Council Meeting, when the Scholarship and Financial Aid Council was formulated.

Then chairman, Dr. Proceso Concepcion led the members Dr. Ambrosio Capayas, Dr. Eden Divinagracia, Mr. Armin Bugayoing (representative of Student Council), Dr. Laura Campos and Mr. Melecio Geda to deliberate on matters pertaining to scholarship grants of the University.

During the first semester of SY 1988-1989, the scholarship program started with only ten (10) recipients. The scholarship grants were given to financially disadvantaged but deserving students who were willing to pursue and finish their education.

In SY 1995-1996 up to SY 2003-2004, Dr. Myrna Fajardo-Ramos, former Vice President for Academics and Research, became the chairman of the Scholarship Committee. During her term, Ms. Lina Ariola became the coordinator of Scholarship and soon after her early retirement, it was Ms. Arlene Casigay, who handled the position from SY 2003-2004 to 1st Semester, SY 2005-2006.

In SY 2004-2005, the chairmanship was turned over to the director of Student Admissions Office, Dr. Juanito Cabanias. Improvements on the University’s scholarship program have taken place for the past several years. To enhance its services and move with today’s fast-paced technology, a databank containing the scholars profiles was created, information regarding Scholarship can now be easily accessed in the University’s website, and the brochures, forms, flowcharts and other pertinent documents were updated.Top Scholars who achieved excellent academic standings were also given recognition during assemblies.

An increase in number of scholars, new donors and even in the budget allocation materialized since 2004. Consequently, the Leadership Seminar last March 20, 2005 marked the first step towards the formation of the new student organization, the Circle of Student Assistants (CoSA).

Various activities were initiated to help the scholars through their adjustment, to form friendships and unity, and to instill the Lasallian values of faith, zeal and communion. These activities include the Lasallian Formation for Student Assistants, Orientation for New Grantees, Parade of Scholars, and the 1st Sportsfest.

These activities aim to enhance the talents and capabilities of the Scholars geared towards its theme”Iskolar Ako, Prawd Ako!” In addition to these accomplishments, the 1st Alumni Homecoming of Former SPREAD Grantees was conceptualized to strengthen and unite former SPREAD grantees.

Finally in an amazing surge from ten (10) grantees, this SY 2013-2014, a total of 1,676 students have been given scholarship grants through the Internal and External fundings. Since its establishment in 1988, Scholarship has gone through several changes that led to the vast improvement of the program. It has gone beyond providing education to financially disadvantaged but deserving students. Scholarship has become a clear manifestation of the University’s mission of providing Lasallian education by teaching minds, touching hearts and transforming lives.
