THE PAMANTASAN ng Lungsod ng Maynila will offer financial assistance to students who have been hit hard by the Covid19 pandemic.

The Board of Regents unanimously voted to renew the provision of financial aid for students in the graduate and professional schools, including the colleges of Medicine and of Law.

“We understand the plight of our students as they navigate learning amid this ‘new normal’ and the ongoing surge in Covid19 infections,” PLM President Emmanuel Leyco said.

“We consider this as our social investment to keep our students on track with their education despite these difficult times,” he added.

Under the program, PLM will provide 50 percent to 100 percent tuition assistance. In exchange, students will have to render to six months or one-year return service.

The university will start accepting applications for tuition aid on September 6, 2021.

Documentary requirements must be submitted by applicants to verify the veracity of a student’s claim for tuition aid, the university said.
