About the ASJ Scholarship:

The Aguilar-San Juan (ASJ) scholarship grant is sponsored by renowned Filipino academics and DECL alumni, Dr. Epifanio San Juan Jr. and Dr. Delia Aguilar, who have been recognized for their contributions to the fields of Philippine literature and Women’s Studies respectively. The grant is awarded based on the applicant’s financial need and good academic standing or talent in areas related to language and literature. The ASJ scholarship grant was first offered in 2018 to two scholars and was later expanded to include more scholars. There are currently seven ASJ scholars: John Jireh Auditor, Elijah Mae Malubay, Trixia Policarpio, Michelle Retuyan, Oliver Rivera Jr., and our two newest August 2023 scholars: Dianne Flores and Edniel Longcob.
