Did you know that De La Salle University currently has approximately 25% of its student population on full scholarship?
Lasallian education is more accessible than most people think, as the University offers several scholarship opportunities to deserving students.
Many also do not know that St. John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, made it his life’s work to help the poorest of the poor. Born in France to a wealthy, noble family, St. John Baptist de La Salle renounced his wealth because he was so moved by the plight of the poor. Believing that quality education was a way to a better life, he established a school system for the underprivileged. This school system now has a network in 81 countries all over the world, including the Philippines!
DLSU remains true to St. John Baptist de La Salle’s mission of making quality education accessible to everyone, most especially the underprivileged. Through its flagship scholarships, the University is able to make education accessible to more Filipinos.
