External and in-school scholarships that benefit the student community

The Bilwi Scholarship Commission, consisting of the Academic Secretariat, student welfare coordination and representative of the Student Movement, benefited 110 students with internal and external scholarships. This benefit comes from 6% constitutional and URACCAN's development fund to promote regional talent.

Teacher Ivonne McLean, the campus's academic secretary, said that since last week they have come together to discuss student scholarship applications in this second semester of the 2020 school year.

"There were more than 100 applications, which the commission analyzed each of them, to award them some kind of scholarships, depending on the scholarship classification established by the scholarship regulations," she explained.

It should be noted that in the Bilwi precinct, of the 110 scholarships awarded, 30 correspond to internal scholarships and 80 to external scholarships, "where most benefited from the special scholarship, which includes: tariff and transport, means that they (students) would only pay the tuition, which corresponds to 100 córdobas", McLean said.

Finally, the teacher reported that the 30 students benefiting from the internal scholarship are entitled to food, stay, "and do not pay tariff or transportation."
