Schoogle, PNVSCA, and AYLC 2008

Making college more accessible - http://www.schoogle.ph/

I want to share with you the new feature on Pathways' newest pet project. It is called Schoogle. It is a portal designed to help high school students find information on how to apply for scholarships offered by reputable local universities and foundations in the country. Primarily, 'Schoogle' provides RP college scholarship info to students. In short, It's an online resource for kids who want to enter college.
Schoogle, a play on the words "school" and "Google," is currently limitedto schools in the National Capital Region. But the project proponentsintend to make it nationwide next year.
The online database currently has data on 40 schools and 20 foundationsthat offer scholarships to students.

Please support this project so that we can make more paths for better Philippines. :)
