Rivera eyes scholarship for PWDs

General Santos City Councilor Jane Rivera on Monday sought for the passage of a bill granting scholarship to persons with disabilities (PWDs).

Rivera has authored a resolution supporting House Bill 10078 or the Scholarship Grants for PWDs Act of 2024.

The bill mandates the Department of Education (DepEd) and Commission on Higher Education (CHED to provide scholarship grants to PWDs aged 25 and below.

Rivera noted that if passed, the proposed measure will provide PWDs in the city opportunities for their educational development.

The councilor’s husband, former City Mayor Ronnel Rivera, has instituted Edukar GenSan Scholarship Program, the city’s flagship scholarship program, during his term.
