Meet Kayla Solis and Ricci Mae Margallo – the first students selected to receive scholarship grants from PeSSA. Kayla and Ricci Mae are freshman BS Mathematics students at the University of the Philippines Diliman (AY 2019-2020). They each will receive PhP 35000 per semester to spend on food, accommodation, transportation, and other university needs until their bachelor’s degree graduation in 2023.
Without our help, Kayla and Ricci Mae had to work as tutors several times a week in order to support their education, in spite of which they managed to receive very good grades during their first semester at the university.
Kayla and Ricci Mae applied for the scholarships through the UP Office of Scholarships and Grants. Let’s wish these two young female Mathematicians the best for their studies.
