    Good day po sa inyo. Ako po ay kapatid ng isang overseas worker at ako po ay 1st year college na. Pwede pa po ba akong mag apply para sa scholarship program? Hindi po kasi ako kaagad nakapasa ng application form kasi po huli na ng ibinigay ng guro namin ang application para sa owwa scholarship program at ng matganggap namin iyon ay kinulang kami sa oras dahil malapit na po ang dead line of submission. Sa ngayon po ay nag-aaral ako sa isang pribadong paaralan dito po sa Iloilo via scholarship grant din po.
    Hindi po ako sigurado kung sa susunod na tabon ay iskolar pa rin po ako. kaya po ako nag einquire dito kasi po ayokong maging pabigat sa aking mga magulang at kapatid. Masakit po sa akin bilang anak at kapatid na nakikitang kumakayod sila ng todo para lang mapag-aral po ako. Sana po ay bigyan ninyo ng tugon ang aking mga katanungan. Salamat po.
