The scholarship assistance was awarded to the students on March 23, 2012 at the University Accreditation Center by the Chairman for Eastern Visayas and third nominee of the An Waray Partylist, Mr. Philip Jude Acidre, with Ms. Julie Ann Guiron and Ms. Jenifer Padual (in-charge of scholarship).

Mr. Acidre explained to the awardees that the scholarship program is not the solution to their financial problems. It is only a support for them to strive hard in their studies. Likewise, he told them that no scholar can succeed alone, there has to be a support group. In addition, he said that college is not about having a degree. There are things in life that needs to be experienced and established, and that it is their own effort. Further, Mr. Acidre reminded the students that "The best thing people cannot steal from you is knowledge."
