Pangilinan files ‘Bawat Pamilya May College Gradweyt’ bill

By Ernie Reyes

MANILA – Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan on Wednesday filed a bill seeking to fund the studies until college graduation of one member of every eligible Filipino family.

Senate Bill 2495, or the “Bawat Pamilya May College Gradweyt Act”, seeks to “ensure that at least one member of every eligible Filipino family shall be assisted to pursue and successfully complete college education.”

The bill gives priority to first-generation college students or students who are part of households included in the Listahanan 2.0, and students who are not part of the Listahanan 2.0 but belong to low-income households.
