UST assures student-athletes keep scholarships for first term

University of Santo Tomas will continue granting scholarships for its student-athletes.

In a statement by UST’s Institute of Physical Education director Rev. Fr. Jannel Novino Abogado, O.P., he said that the Tigers’ scholarships will remain unaffected by the cost-cutting measures of the school.

“In line with the statement made by UST’s Rector Magnificus Rev. Fr. Richard G. Ang, O.P. — in his letter to all the stakeholders of the university dated May 26, 2020 which guarantees that there will be a ‘continuation of the university scholarships granted during the second term of the academic year 2019-2020 until December 2020,’ all scholarships conferred by IPEA to its athletes during the second term of the academic year 2019-2020 shall be carried on until December 2020,” it said.

“Therefore there shall be no athlete who will be released from scholarship this coming first term of A.Y. 2020-2021.”

This comes after The Varsitarian reported that at least 30 student-athletes will see their scholarships removed, while others will be relegated to a “training pool” to keep 50-percent of their scholarships.

However, if the University Athletic Association of the Philippines does not play out its Season 83 tournaments by the early part of 2020, the university will deliberate what it will do to the scholarships of students who excel in sports, arts, and music.
