The study explored the experiences of an Eco Scholar as he pays his school fees from the sales of recyclables under the Eco Scholarship of a university. This special non-academic scholarship of a university in the Philippines covers the tuition fees and allowances of the scholar and gives hopes to an aspiring student to finish the program. This case study interviewed an Eco Scholar from a university in Central Visayas. This Eco Scholar is a male student, 26 years of age and a resident of Sitio Panas, Sta, Rosa Olango Island, Mactan, Philippines. The researcher utilized participatory-observation. Consent was requested before the conduct of interviews, and the informant was told that he could withdraw from the study anytime if he decides to do so. The narratives of this case revealed the personality of the scholar, the qualities that an Eco Scholar should possess, and the difficulties he encountered while at work. The scholar shares the values he learned from solid waste management, his day-to-day struggle to make ends meet, and his dreams and aspirations for the family. The case study recognizes that the school system is vital part of our primary learning system and a powerful vehicle for change.
