Poor College Students To Receive P40k-P60k Subsidy From CHEd

The Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) was set to distribute about P40,000-P60,000 subsidy for over 300,000 poor college students.

Most Filipino students studying in college came from poor families and could rarely complete college education due to financial problems.

Good news for poor college students, the Philippine government is now offering programs to help the families of students under the line of poverty.

College Students

The government has Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES), a program of the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act (Republic Act No. 10931) aiming to help those families.

The program would give a P40,000 subsidy for students studying in  state universities and colleges (SUCs) while students in private universities and colleged would receive P60,000.

The scholarship is a grants-in-aid program and not a free-tuition scheme aiming to support the students with their academic expenses such as books, transportations, lodging, and other school supplies.

College Students

CHEd will prioritize the following qualified students:

  • Students residing and studying in private HEIs in cities/municipalities with no existing SUC or CHEd-recognized LUC
  • Students included in the Listahanan 2.0
  • Continuing grantees of the Expanded Students Grants in Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGP-PA) by CHEd.

The commission said that the students who were not included in the Listahan 2.0 might be qualified for the grant. The government allocates P16 billion for the said program.

“Kulang ‘yan because if you look at the Listahanan or the 4Ps list, there are about 1.2 million who would qualify but the money is good only for 300,000 slots,” Unified Student Financial Assistance System for Tertiary Education (Unifast) officer-in-charge Carmelita Yadao Sison said.
