Right Now is the Right Time

     Notre Dame of Jolo College (NDJC) is a place where students’ dreams come to reality. Since 1954 NDJC has grown despite the unpredictable peace and order condition. The Oblate of Mary Immaculate Fathers and Brothers remained steadfast in bringing the Good News to the poor through its mission of educating peoples from all walks of life. It is a melting pot of culture shaped by majority Islam practicing students, and minority Christians and Badjaos. NDJC is the only tertiary education institution that houses large number of hardworking scholars that are coming from poor families.

     Now and then, NDJC needs your support to magnify its reach, change peoples’ lives, listen to more voices, and drive and inspire more students closer to their dreams. With collective and collaborative efforts, we can reach out and help more.

Notre Dame of Jolo College Scholarship Program has been supporting qualified poor but deserving students of generous financial assistance as they receive holistic education.  Thanks to the many generous benefactors and supporters of NDJC who directly and indirectly extended support. Basically, the ultimate deciding reason in awarding scholarship grants to students of the Notre Dame of Jolo College, aside from academic capability, is the proven low economic status of the student.
