Abstract:

This study aimed to determine the challenges experienced by the SGP-PA Scholars. This was conducted during the second semester of the school year 2015- 2016. To gather the necessary data needed for the study, the researchers made use of the survey checklist. The checklist was validated by four experts before it was distributed to the respondents. The data were gathered, tallied and subjected to statistical analysis. The statistical tools used were means, ranking and Kruskal- Wallis Test. Results showed that when the respondents were grouped as a whole, the number one challenge faced by the SGP-PA scholars in the academic was their pronunciation. When it comes to social category, they took time in adjusting with the behavior of their classmates. With regards to emotional or psychological, they missed everything they usually do at home. While in the financial category, they experienced shortage with their monthly allowance and they needed to borrow money from others. Moreover when the respondents were grouped based on their specialization, the results showed that the number one challenge faced by the SGP-PA scholars specializing in teaching the mentally retarded in academic category was they mispronounced words. When it comes to social category they took time in adjusting with the behavior of their classmates. With regard to emotional or psychological, they missed everything they usually do at home. When it comes to financial category was they experienced shortage with their monthly allowance and they needed to borrow money from others. Moreover when the respondents were grouped based on their specialization, the results showed that the number one challenge faced by the SGP-PA scholars specializing in teaching the gifted in academic category was they need to reread the statement before they fully understand it. When it comes to social category, they took time in adjusting with the behavior of their classmates and they found it hard to socialize with new acquaintances. With regards to emotional or psychological category, they missed everything they usually do at home. When it comes to financial category, the problems included the delayed money allotted for their fees, they also experienced shortage with their monthly allowance and the needed to borrow money from the others. The researchers concluded that based on the findings, financial challenges exist because the stipend given by the government is not enough to sustain the scholars’ monthly needs and even some parents utilize the stipend given to their children for the family’s needs. Academic challenge is primarily caused by the lack of motivation on the part of the grantees. In addition to that, most of them got accepted in the university barely meeting the required standard. This difficulty can be caused by their poor preparation in their basic education. Most of the grantees found it hard to adjust in their new environment given the fact that they all come from different provinces.
