Search on for Star Scholars Batch 2001

Designed and given only to the best and brightest graduating high school students, another batch of Star Scholars candidates will attend a special orientation on February 16 at the M. Gaerlan Conservatory. The Office of the AVP for Academic Services and the Marketing Communication Office will sponsor the event.

Of the thousands of aspiring fourth year high school students who hurdled the university entrance examinations on September and October last year, only 40 made it to the preliminary screening.

Thirteen of which came from various Lasallian institutions such as La Salle Green Hills, De La Salle Santiago-Zobel, and La Salle Academy-Iligan. The rest of the batch came from other prestigious high schools such as Ateneo de Manila, Philippine Science High School, Poveda Learning Center, St. Jude Catholic School, San Beda College, Xavier School-San Juan, Immaculate Conception Academy-San Juan, Uno Hihg School, St. Bridget’s College-Batangas, St. Stephen’s High School, Grace Christian High School, Don Bosco Technical Institute-Makati, Chiang Kai Shek College, PAREF Woodrose School, St. Paul College of Pasig, and Assumption Antipolo High School.

Started in 1999, the Star Scholars Program is an innovative scholarship that offers an integrated undergraduate and graduate scholarship to top students from all over the country. Those selected for the program have the unique opportunity to earn a master’s degree or go into medical proper after finishing their undergraduate degree on full scholarship.

As part of the orientation, the Star Scholars candidates will meet university officials and deans of the different colleges, as well as alumni and students who belong to the first and second batches of Star Scholars. These candidates will then be interviewed by STUFAP and Admissions officials for the next and final step of the selection process. By March, the new Star Scholars batch for school year 2001-2002 will be announced.
