Results of the study revealed the following: delaying gratification on food, physical pleasures, social interaction, money, and achievement were sometimes practiced by the grantees; giving importance to aspects of identity such as relational, social, and collective identities were frequently practiced while giving importance to personal identity was seen to be always practiced by the grantees; majority of the grantees exhibited satisfactory academic performance; the relationship between personality adjustments in terms of delayed gratification and academic performance was statistically not significant while identity orientation had significant relationship with the academic performance of the grantees.
