Fr. Ismael Zuloaga SJ Scholarship Fund

Minimum Donation of 500 pesos.



Xavier School Nuvali has a bold vision to make Xavier-quality education accessible to the poor by having 25% of the student population on some form of financial aid.  Since the school’s opening, an innovative program has been launched by Fr. Aristotle Dy, SJ, and Mrs Arlene Choo, President and Principal, respectively, to recruit the best and brightest from public elementary schools in Laguna to study high school at Xavier Nuvali. The Zuloaga Scholarship Fund was launched in 2012 to specifically support the Nuvali scholars.  

On October 8, 2020, the 8th death anniversary of Fr. Zulo, as he is fondly remembered by many alumni and friends, Xavier School is relaunching the Fr. Ismael Zuloaga SJ Scholarship Fund.  The Fr. Ismael Zuloaga Scholarship Fund aims to directly sponsor the education of high school Grant-in-Aid (GIA) recipients who are graduates of public elementary schools. With 25 scholars in each grade level from Grades 7 to 12, the program aims to support 150 scholars and achieve the goal of having 25% of high school students as full GIA recipients. Twenty-five grantees are now admitted every year in Grade 7, for them to complete the six years of Junior and Senior High School at Xavier. 

Stretched to its limits, the Zuloaga Fund now invites 150 individual sponsors to cover the cost of tuition and miscellaneous fees, books and supplies, uniform, transportation, and school lunch for the promising students.
