Las Piñas City Mayor Vergel ‘Nene’ Aguilar said qualified beneficiaries of Dr. Filemon C. Aguilar Memorial College of Las Piñas will soon receive financial grant of P15,000.
Aguilar said qualified beneficiaries are those who have graduated Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from DFCAMCLP starting from school year 2014-15 and those who are going to take the CPA Board Examination.
The provision of financial grant was in accordance to city ordinance no. 1271-15 cited as the “DFCAMCLP Accountancy Financial grant”, he said.
The purpose of establishing the financial grant was aimed to provide better chance and opportunity to poor but deserving students to aid them in becoming licensed accountancy professionals, he added.
Aguilar said beneficiaries of the grant may be required to render service to the city for six months following their board examinations.
He encouraged applicants and prospective beneficiaries to fully comply with the documentary requirements to enjoy said financial grant.
Aguilar, however, warned that any wilful omission of material matter relating to the application shall be ground for disqualification.
The city-run College has already produced 117 CPA Board passers and two (2) topnotchers since 2003, making it as one of the best performing schools in southern Metro Manila area.(END)
