We have involved the scholars and their parents in the outreach to the community activities. We held educational excursions for the kids during their school break. We have encouraged members of our board of trustees to visit with the Field Team and the scholars when they go home to the Philippines on vacation from their overseas domiciles.

Before SAS Ai broke into the scene offering its brand of financial assistance to bright kids who come from poor families so they can attend SAS high school, many groups, e.g., Foundations, Well-to-do Families, Associations, special interest groups, etc. tried to sponsor kids to attend SAS high school. Their good deed had one glaring flaw: they did not require their beneficiaries to attain a certain GPA and graduate. Their beneficiaries were left to fend for themselves. Sad to say the attrition rate of their programs sat at 2 out 10 not finishing school.

SAS Ai sets the gold standard in scholarship programs. How? SAS Ai maintains a Field Team operating locally in Tagudin, close by the SAS campus. They oversee the welfare of the scholars, provide them with needed school supplies, interface with the teachers to check on how the scholars are doing in class, check class attendance and overall grades. The scholars are held accountable for their grades, behavior and progress in order to maintain their scholarship awards.

The SAS Ai scholarship program is the most generous of all financial aid packages offered, paying not only for tuition and books but also providing school uniforms, shoes and school supplies. The set up is geared to help the brightest kids who come from the poorest of families.

SAS Ai, Inc. leads the field and sets the standard of measurement in scholarship programs.

I have seen the way the SAS Ai Field Team takes care of the SAS Ai scholars with respect, attention, and follow through. The Field Team is comprised of volunteers. They are working professionals - teachers, accountants, business people. Still they put in their time to help. Registration day is coming up soon and members of the Field Team will be super busy helping the kids get outfitted with their school uniforms, get properly enrolled, and to get their school supplies. The Field Team contributes to the success of the SAS Ai scholarship program. They are our volunteers where the rubber meets the road.
