The 2,437 EBD scholars were granted of their educational assistance on September 1, 2009 at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum. Mayor Eduardo Dimacuha and Association of Barangay Captains (ABC) President Vilma Dimacuha distributed the scholarship grants estimating the amount of P20 million from the city government’s scholarship program.

Approximately P11.5M was doled out for the tuition fees and P7.7M for the scholars’ allowance. Each scholar was given P8,000; from which P5,000 goes for the tuition fees and P3,000 for their allowance on the first semester. These amounts were directly handed out to the representatives of different colleges and universities in Batangas City.

Batangas State University (BSU) has the most number of scholars reaching up to 1,076; next is the University of Batangas (UB) with 503; and Lyceum of the Philippines University with 376 scholars. Through the help of the 36 partner schools, the city government’s scholarship program continues to aid these deserving students in pursuing their education. Among these partner schools are prominent universities as the Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, and the University of the Philippines. The scholars should maintain their grades without going below the 2.5 General Weighted Average (GWA).

Aside from college scholars, the EBD scholarship program has 600 high school scholars enrolled in Colegion ng Lungsod ng Batangas (CLB). As for the out-of-school youth, the scholarship program offers skills training seminars on welding, scaffolding, and automotive. This program is under the supervision of the City Council for Youth Affairs.
