    Night High School Scholarship Guidelines Night High School Scholarship Guidelines Document Transcript

    • General Guidelines Night High School Scholarship Project I. Project Scope St. Dominic Academy Batch ’78 Alumni, Inc. (“SDA Batch ’78”) scholarship project shall be officially known as the “SDA Batch ’78 Scholarship Grant”. This educational grant shall be awarded to deserving secondary school freshmen selected by the Scholarship Committee through a competitive process. The number of recipients, as well as the nature of the scholarship grant will be determined by the Scholarship Committee on an annual basis. This scholarship project shall be managed by the Scholarship Committee. This scholarship grant will be different and separate from any other grants that may already be existing or coming; and it shall be implemented within the scope of the Scholarship Agreement signed between SDA Batch ’78 representatives and Student/Parent. For the school year 2010-11, SDA Batch ’78 shall award a 5-Year Scholarship Grant to two (2) high school freshmen, one male & one female, at St. Dominic Academy (“SDA”) of Pulilan, Bulacan, under the school’s Night High School Program. II. Scholarship Committee The scholarship project shall be managed by a Scholarship Committee consisting of a Chairman and four alumni members of SDA Batch ’78. Membership in this committee shall be done by appointment or volunteer selection as determined by SDA Batch ’78 alumni members. Tenure shall be for two years. After the 2-year term, it is the responsibility of the incumbent Scholarship Committee members to turn-over immediately and completely all project-related documents, transactions, records, and proceedings that occurred during the term of their position to the incoming new Scholarship Committee members. All decisions made by the Scholarship Committee shall be deemed final. III. Funding and Coverage The scholarship project shall be funded by SDA Batch ’78 through pledge donations from alumni members and other donors. Funds collected specifically for this project shall not to be used for any other purpose. The allocated funds were projected to be sufficient to cover tuition fees, textbooks, shoes & uniforms, transportation allowance, school-related miscellaneous and incidental expenses for each scholar for five years. Continuity of the scholarship program and the number of scholars launched per school year will depend on the availability of funds, results of the project, and donor’s participation. SDA Batch ’78 recognizes its commitment to the student and agrees that no scholar will be launched unless the full five-year costs are adequately funded. Depending on what will be agreed upon by all donors and the Scholarship Committee, any remaining funds at the end of the scholarship project shall be re-allocated to other SDA Batch ’78 charitable activities OR deposited to SDA Batch ’78 General Fund account OR refunded to all donors of this scholarship project on a pro-rated basis (based on calculated percentage of donations made by each donor).
    • General Guidelines (Cont’d) Night High School Scholarship Project IV. Criteria for Selection of Candidates Selection of candidates to qualify for the scholarship grant shall come from the new batch of freshmen students officially admitted to St. Dominic Academy Night High School Program. The Scholarship Committee shall coordinate with the school screening committee administering the Night High School program to seek recommendation of the top 10 (5 males & 5 females) possible candidates for the scholarship grant. In addition, the following criteria shall also be used by the Scholarship Committee in order for the candidates to be considered for the scholarship grant: a. Candidates must be bona fide resident of Pulilan, Bulacan. Proof of residency is required. b. Candidates should have a grade point average (GPA) of 85 or above and should belong to the top 20% of the primary school graduating class. c. The scholarship being need-based, the ideal candidate’s household income should not be more than Php5,000 per month. However, the Scholarship Committee reserves the right to waive this requirement upon determination of the actual family’s needs. Applicants shall be required to submit proof of income. V. Selection of Scholars and Awarding To streamline the selection process, the Scholarship Committee shall coordinate and seek recommendation of the top 10 (5 males & 5 females) possible candidates from the school screening committee administering the Night High School Program. The Scholarship Committee shall request from the school screening committee copies of application materials submitted by the applicants and any related documents resulting from the applicant’s official admission to the Night High School Program. All candidates shall be carefully screened and evaluated by the Scholarship Committee. The Scholarship Committee will judge the candidates based on a 10-point rating in each of the following areas: Financial Need, Character and Personality, and Academic Achievement. Candidates and his/her parents or legal guardians will be interviewed by the Scholarship committee as part of the selection process at which time details of the scholarship program shall be explained to the applicant and his/her parents or legal guardians. Candidates (1 male & 1 female) receiving the highest rating from the Scholarship Committee will be granted the scholarship awards. In the event of a tie, the final decision shall be made by the Scholarship Committee. Upon formal notification from the Scholarship Committee, recipients of the scholarship grant and their respective parents or legal guardians shall sign the Scholarship Agreement as witnessed by members of the Scholarship Committee. Recipients of the scholarship grant and their respective parents or legal guardians shall be invited to participate in an award ceremony to formally receive the SDA Batch ’78 Scholarship Certificate.
    • General Guidelines (Cont’d) Night High School Scholarship Project VI. Monitoring Recipients of the scholarship grant shall agree and strictly adhere to the following monitoring guidelines and requirements. Failure to comply with any of these provisions shall be considered due cause for termination of the scholarship grant and all its benefits. Once the scholarship grant is terminated, the scholar shall have neither recourse nor legal right for reinstatement to the program. The scholar shall submit a copy of grades for every grading period to the Scholarship Committee and/or allow the Scholarship Committee to make a formal request of copies of their official school records from the school administration. The scholar shall maintain direct person to person contact with the Scholarship Committee at least once a month through regular meetings at a designated time and place. The scholar shall maintain a grade point average (GPA) of at least 85 for every grading period, with no failing marks on any of the subjects. If for any reason the scholar chooses to drop out of school, or is taken out of the scholarship program with due cause, or temporarily discontinues attendance at SDA, or continuously fails to attend classes un-reasonably, the scholar loses all scholarship privileges and will not be reinstated to the program. However, if the scholar drops out or temporarily discontinues attendance due to health reasons, possible reinstatement shall be determined by the Scholarship Committee. If the scholar fails to meet any or all of scholarship requirements, the option to re-evaluate the scholarship program, consider new applicants for the scholarship grant, or totally discontinue the scholarship program, is at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee and donors of the said program. SDA Batch ’78 awards the scholarship grant on the assumption that the scholar possesses exemplary good moral character. Therefore, should the scholar be subjected to any disciplinary measures imposed by the school administration of St. Dominic Academy, or be involved in any felony or criminal charges, the scholarship grant and all its benefits shall be deemed terminated.
