The privilege of Quality Christian Education is valuable and indeed, a priceless gift to be endowed upon. The University of Negros Occidental – Recoletos seizes this opportunity to provide the gift of education to deserving youth of the province of Negros Occidental and the neighboring province through Educational Aide Programs.

The creation of the Office of the Director of Scholarships has for its main objective to centralize all the scholarship programs of the University and to act as companion to the scholars and grantees in their continuous search for truth and wisdom.  This office is a manifestation of the Augustinian Recollect Mission to serve and assist the weak and the poor.
