For over four decades now, the Ateneo College Scholarship Program for deserving but financially challenged students continues to thrive – thanks to the many generous benefactors who have extended much needed and appreciated support. For School Year 2008-2009, fourteen percent (14%) of the total college population enjoyed financial assistance. Seventy percent (70%) of these grantees enjoyed a full tuition and fees assistance, twenty percent (20%) were awarded dorm support while twenty eight percent (28%) of them received book and transportation assistance.
Criteria for Selection
With very limited financial grants to award each year, the Scholarship Committee makes its decision on each application after carefully examining the results of the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET) together with the high school academic per formance and extra-curricular record of the applicant, school recommendations and the family’s financial resources.
Financial aid grantees are selected on the basis of:
a) intellectual ability and excellent academic achievement;
b)financial need as clearly manifested in the Scholarship / Financial Aid Questionnaire; and,
c)demonstrated commitment to the service of the community and potential for greater service in the future.
Applicants must fill out a Scholarship/ Financial Aid Questionnaire. This form is without charge and must be secured and submitted together with the Application for Admission form. There is no special exam for scholarship. Application for scholarship does not influence in any way the decision concerning acceptance into the college. Applicants therefore, should not wait for the decision on their admission application before securing or submitting a financial aid application. Applications not accompanied by required documents or with incomplete information will not be processed.
Provincial applicants interested in staying at the Ateneo Residence Halls as dorm scholars should fill out and submit an Ateneo Residence Halls Dorm Application Form. This is available from the Office of the Director of Residence Halls.

Financial aid takes various forms:
a) 100% tuition and fees
b) 75% tuition and fees
