Graduating Senior High School Students Vying for BIT IC’s Go Beyond Academic Scholarship Program (GBASP)
On February 24, sixty-five graduating senior high school students from different parts of Bohol arrived at BIT International College Main Campus in Tagbilaran City to take the 2018 Go Beyond Academic Scholarship Qualifying Examinations.
Exactly a week ago, thirteen students came to take the same qualifying examinations at BIT IC Tagbilaran and eight at BIT IC Talibon.
The students were tested on mathematics and English, and were made to write a personal essay on “The Road Less Travelled.” In math, the students were tested on algebra, trigonometry, analytical geometry, discrete math, and basic calculus.
The Go Beyond Academic Scholars who will qualify for any degree program in BIT IC Tagbilaran will occupy the highest tier among BIT Scholars, and will qualify for a 100% tuition fee discount. They will all be schooled at the Main Campus of BIT IC and will be provided with free textbooks and course materials. Above all, they will be mentored by an elite corps of BIT IC faculty and take honors classes during their first two years.
The 1st cohort of Go Beyond Scholars will be announced before the end of March.
The creation of the GBASP is in line with BIT IC’s mission of providing affordable college education especially to the marginalized youth of Bohol and the neighboring provinces. It fortifies the commitment of its Board of Trustees, headed by its founders, Bohol Vice-Governor Atty. Dionisio D. Balite and his wife, Mrs. Lilia A. Balite, to equality of opportunity, and nurture the capabilities of young people to become AGENTS OF CHANGE in their communities.
In the recent past years, BIT International College has been offering generous tuition fee discounts to all its students across the board.
