St. La Salle Financial Assistance Grant for
Incoming College Freshmen

General Guidelines

De La Salle University provides financial assistance to Filipino students who meet specific criteria for eligibility.
The selection of grantees is done by the Scholarship Committee based on the following factors/criteria:

Financial Need. Only those whose annual family income is less than PhP 700,000 will be considered.

Academic Competence. The Committee will take into consideration the applicants’ high school grades and DLSU College Admission Test (DLSU CAT) results.

Interview Result. Only shortlisted applicants will be invited to report for an interview in 05-09 June 2017.

Processing of financial assistance applications will begin after the list of accepted freshman applicants has been officially released by the Office of Admissions and Scholarships (OAS). However, acceptance into the University does not necessarily guarantee that financial assistance will be given to the applicant. The number of students to be granted of financial assistance will depend on the number of available slots for the degree program. Financial assistance can be given to only one grantee per family.

The results of financial assistance applications will be released in 20 June 2017.
Once awarded, the grants are renewable every trimester. Grantees are required to meet certain academic standards and to abide by the policies prescribed by the OAS.
The financial assistance program covers tuition and fees only.
