The City Government released a total of P6.7 million worth of allowances that can be used by the students for their school supplies, transportation expenses, and boarding house rentals.

City Treasurer Mare Vae Reyes told SunStar Cebu that 4,136 scholars are currently studying at the University of Cebu and received financial assistance from the City.

Reyes also explained that only students residing in the city's upland barangays are eligible to receive the P5,000 transportation and boarding allowance, while those living in the lowland barangays will only receive P1,000 for school supplies.

The other city scholars who are studying in different schools and universities will also receive their allowance once the list will be finalized by the city's scholarship office, she said. (IRT)
