Adopt a Scholar offers an opportunity for associations or individuals abroad to establish scholarship grants or endowment funds in identified public schools/colleges or to provide financial assistance to disadvantaged but scholastically qualified students.

Provide funding assistance to the scholar through:

Provide an initial fund to be accounted in the depository bank of the host institution. Only the interest of this deposit will be used to defray the costs of the scholarship. After the graduation of the beneficiary, the scholarship grant can be awarded to another qualified student.


provide financial assistance either on a semestral or annual basis, or provide the lump-sum equivalent of the cost of completing the course of study, payable to the depository bank of the host institution or to be turned over to the host institution’s representative.
