WHy STI has so many scholars?

Systems Technology Institute College..I always see them giving out scholarships to poor people in Wish Ko Lang and other benefit shows- how do they get their school running if most of their students are scholars? I am actually happy that they are helping a lot of kids, but just curious where they get money for their teachers and facilities...what do you think?

I am not sure but I think this is a promotional stunt or advert to entice more enrollees, and the other reason is maybe tax deductible or tax free. On the other hand, I also have a feeling that STI nowadays, has "declined" in terms of the strength in their curriculum and (some) teacher's effectiveness in teaching.

They source it from the tuition and other fees that the non-scholar students pay. It's like subsidizing their tuition. That's usually done in state universities. I graduated from UP and we have hundreds of scholars who even get stipends and allowances on top of their free matriculation. It's also possible that the scholarships STI hands out is shared with a private institution or a foundation.

Hi there, For me STI manage thier school through finances because before they goes for that option of scholarship they have plan, prediction and costing, meaning it is part of their promotional ways. Before they go for scholarship the cost will be budgeted and allocated for how many schollar in each year.

Yeah, I think your right. Why would they offer such scholarships if they are losing money. I guess, this is also their way of giving back to parents especially to those who can not afford to send their son/daughter to college.Thank for your time my friend.
