    Good Day po!

    I am a graduating senior high school student and I really need to have a scholarship to be part to, to be able to continue my education and pursue my course, which is BSA or Bachelor of Science in Accountancy. Knowing this Unifast Scholarship gives me some hope to be able to continue my studies, our family is in the lower status of living and so I am looking forward to this scholarship to render me some help until I finish my studies.

    Hoping for your kind hearts to open opportunities for someone like us.

We are in college life,but we can’t afford tuition fee, because my mom only earn 500$ a month, and we need a lot of money to continue my college life, and persue my dreams.

    Thank you so much!!

    1. Hi Antonette, sorry talaga na natagpuan mo ang iyong sarili sa ganoong kondisyon. Upang makakuha ng tulong mula sa UniFast, ang kailangan mo lang ay magsumite ng isang online na aplikasyon na sumusunod sa mga alituntuning ibinigay sa post na ito.

      Iyon ang unang hakbang na dapat gawin. Best of Luck
