Each student beneficiary can benefit from a cash assistance worth Php3, 000.
This educational support is intended only for all first-year college students in town who are enrolled in either public or private universities or institutions and must be currently enrolled in the 2nd semester of the academic year 2023-2024.

Said program is also in partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)’s Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program.
Furthermore, 28,333 first-year college students in the entire province of Albay are the target beneficiaries of this assistance.
