OWWA OFW-Dependent Scholarship Program 2013-2014 Announced

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) RWO-NcR announced that they are already accepting application for the OFW Defendent Scholarship Program (OFWDSP) for the School Year 2013-2014.

The educational assistance intended for qualified dependents of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW’s) who wanted to pursue any four-year or five-year baccalaureate degree or associate degree in any state college or university.

According to OWWA, a total of 204 annual scholarship slots are distributed in seventeen (17) cities of the National Capital Region. The legal dependent of an OWWA active member-OFW  whose monthly salary is US$400.00 or below can avail the program. The dependent refers to only one (1) child of married or single OFW; or only one (1) sibling (brother or sister).

The qualified legal dependent must be single and not more than 21 years old at the time of application.

    Good Day
    Hi! im a seafare and currently onboard ship. Just to know if there is any way that I can apply for a short course scholarship on your office while i’m onboard. I want to take a short course about electrical on MFI Ortigas but the course that I want to take will start at April 6 2013 same but i will i arrive at the phil at april 8.
    I already spoke to MFI regarding this matter they say that I can send someone on my behalf to enroll me on this course. Is there any chance that I can do for my expenses to be covered by your program? I’m a member of regular member of OWWA.
    thank you for considering my situation.
    Have a great day! Godbless
