Scholarships for college students in the Philippines

by reynz on April 7, 2013

I went on a google overdrive and fished every scholarship grant information I could find. Hopefully, this would help future college students wanting to find resources to help finance their education. I am not connected with any of these organizations. Should you have any questions, please visit the links provided below, and look for the contact pages.

Let’s face it. Mahirap maging purita. Feel ko yong part na you cannot go to college dahil can’t afford ang parents. You have this so many dreams, pero unang arangkada pa lang talo ka na. So, you find ways to solve the puzzle! Grr! I am a product of a scholarship grant myself (teynks kay titser ms. bio!). Kalbaryo sya noon, heaven naman ako ngayon. Kaya sa mga kagaya ko, prepare – because you’ll have to work twice as hard para lang maka-alpas sa mga kalechehan nang life! But if you’re able to clip all the dramatics and pulverize the obstacles to get to your dreams, mas delicious sya. So, pag otsenta anyos ka na, magka-kape kape na lang with friends, meron ka nang story to contribute.

If you know of any scholarship grant that’s not listed here, do share it with us naman. I’ll try to update this list para makatulong.

Good luck on your search!


SOURCE: The Commission on Higher Education

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) offers three types of financial grants to incoming college students under its Student Financial Assistance Program (StuFAP): Scholarship Program (Full or Half Merit), Grant-in-Aid Program and Student Loan Program.

SOURCE: The National Career Assessment Examination

NCAE 2012 is an aptitude test geared toward providing information through test results for self-assessment, career awareness and career guidance of high school students for their post-secondary courses and application for scholarship. The NCAE test is mandatory and held annually usually in August.

NCAE result is a requirement in college but still recommendatory in nature. There is still no passage of law that makes the NCAE mandatory prior to enrollment in college/university. NCAE results will give the students and the parents an idea on the career path most suited to the graduating students thus, allowing for better decision on their choice of courses. Usually results are releases 3-4 months after the exam.

Per DepEd Order 28-2011, the NCAE, which used to be given to fourth year high school students only, would now be administered as well to third year high school students, both in public and private secondary schools. If your score is 98% of higher, you might be eligible for a scholarship.

1.) College scholarships await over 20,000 top students
2.) National career assessment exam also open to 3rd year students


TAGUDIN, Ilocos Sur, April 5 (PIA) — At least 100 college students now enjoy free education under the local government’s Edukasyon Para iti Amin’ (Education for All) scholarship program.

The town’s scholars are enrolled separately at the Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University campuses in Bacnotan and Agoo towns and in San Fernando City all of La Union province.

The scholarships were awarded in February DMMSU’s Bacnotan campus through lawyer Benjamin Sapitula, the university president.

Some 477 students of Tagudin were also given scholarship through the Pinoy-Verzosa Scholarship Grant.

The students are currently enrolled at the Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State College in the towns of Cervantes, Santiago, Narvacan, Santa Maria, and Tagudin all of Ilocos Sur province.

Providing free education is in line with President Benigno Simeon Aquino III’s program to create economic growth by giving students the opportunity to learn and find employment. (MCA/MNA/PIA1 Ilocos Sur)

The SM College Scholarship Program was established by SM Foundation in 1993 to help provide quality education to bright but underprivileged public high school graduates. The program has 1200 college scholars at any time nationwide. The scholars are enrolled in 73 colleges and universities in NCR, Baguio, Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Lucena, Pampanga, Pangasinan, Rizal, Tarlac, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo. To date, 1464 scholars have graduated from the program and many of them are gainfully employed with the SM Group of Companies and other companies here and abroad.

SM Foundation takes pride in its scholars’ achievements. The 2012 batch of graduates composed of 164 scholars yielded 76 who attained Latin Honors and Academic Distinction; 3 Summa cum Laude, 13 Magna cum Laude, 45 Cum Laude, and 15 Academic Distinction.

SMFI-Kabayan Foundation in TOPS Search

In 2011, SMFI signed a MOA with Kabayan Foundation to manage the search for TOPS (Ten Outstanding Public High School Students). There are four awardees for Academic Excellence, four for Leadership Excellence and two for Special Circumstances. The winners receive full college scholarships plus monthly allowance.


SM Foundation also opened its scholarship program to enrolees in Technical-Vocational courses in Punlaan School and Don Bosco, Makati. There are scholars and graduates in this program.


The school building program assists in addressing the lack of classrooms in public elementary and high schools. Since 2002, SMFI has supported the Adopt-a-School Program of the Department of Education. Its lead benefactor, SM Prime Holdings, Inc. through SM Foundation has to date donated 46 school buildings with 114 classrooms. The classroom models are single-storey, two-classroom; single-storey, four-classroom; and two-storey, four classroom. Out of 46 school buildings, 12 resulted from a partnership with Deutsche Ag Manila Branch, Gfk Consulting, Stephen CuUnjieng and Banco De Oro Foundation.


In 2005, SM Foundation partnered with ABS-CBN Foundation to help provide quality education for children enrolled in public elementary schools thru educational TV (ETV). SM Foundation donated ETV infrastructure with teacher training to 60 elementary schools in Dasmariñas Cavite, Batangas City and NCR.

SOURCE: Metrobank College Scholarship Program (CSP)


1995, the College Scholarship Program (CSP) was established by the Metrobank Foundation (MBFI) to give poor and academically qualified students access to quality higher education and encourage them to strive for excellence in both academic and non-academic undertakings as well as hone their talents and skills for greater involvement in socio-civic humanitarian endeavors.  A total of 1,013 scholarship grants have been awarded to college students enrolled in Education, Engineering, Architecture, Science and Business courses from 1995 to 2011.

Why We Call to SCRAP STFAP: A Mini Primer
At present, the Office of UP President Alfredo Pascual is pushing for revisions of STFAP (Socialized Tuition and Financial Assistance Program)…

Another comment left on my Facebook account:

it’s not easy as it looks. answers to the questions – supposedly designed to elicit info on the financial capacity of the family to pay tuition – can easily be manipulated to make it appear that one is dirt poor and needs subsidy and then you see the student in the campus driving around in a car.

they don’t even take into consideration, for example, that 2 of my kids are simultaneously enrolled in up and that, if anything else, our family needs assistance at that point. no, they looked at the BIR income report, saw it exceeded the threshold for bracket D, never mind the fact that almost half of said income goes directly to mandatory contributions, taxes, and loan payments (which most working class Pinoys usually resort to during enrolments). they simply bracketed us under C and that’s that. our appeal is still pending at this time, when the second semester had practically ended.


reynz April 9, 2013 at 8:19 am

This comment is for the DOST Merit Scholarship

isa pa yan. often those with inside connections get scholarships. even principals in high school can play favorites, as they are the ones who are tasked to certify that applicants (for the merit scholarship and indigent scholarship) belong to the highest 10% of the graduating class. they could easily manipulate data and squeeze in kin and friends and ease out those more deserving for slots


Baby April 9, 2013 at 11:45 am

Reynz, ang DLSU may scholarship program din for graduates of public schools. They can call the Taft office for more details.

Im proud to say that for giving scholarship grants, nothing beats UST.

Why? Because Im a product of its generous effort to help students to finish college and achieve success in life. In my four years stay in UST, 3 years of it Im a working scholar. Yes. You read it right. A Working Scholar. :)
I did not pay a single centavo for the tuition and miscellaneous in that 3 years. UST-OSACS offers different categories of scholarship grants. What I applied then was the San Lorenzo Ruiz when I was incoming 2nd year college. My father had an accident in the middle of 1st yr’s 2nd semester. He was not able to work again after that accident. Sadly, he is the sole provider in the family. I thought I would really stop college. Buti na lang, sinabihan ako ng classmate ko na may mga scholarship available sa USTe. Honestly, I can say, Im not a honor student in my secondary school. Hindi ako matalino o gifted sa academics, hindi din ako athletic. Masipag lang ako mag-aral. So I was really glad and grateful to UST that they acknowledge industrious and hard working students like me and give chance to have a scholarship grant. :)

Thank you and congratulations!


Angelica lim April 26, 2013 at 3:08 pm

Kenneth San Pedro April 28, 2013 at 6:33 pm

Do you happen to know how can barangay elected officials apply for a scholarship grant? Thanks!


reynz April 28, 2013 at 8:52 pm

how can barangay elected officials apply for a scholarship? anybody can apply for a scholarship really. for as long as you qualify, check the rules of each scholarship grant that you are applying.


abby May 2, 2013 at 11:54 pm

do you know scholarship programs for single moms like me? Sumakabilang bahay na si Mister and i was not able to finish my degree because of certain financial concerns… maaga rin ako nakapag asawa… im hoping i will be able to get scholarship program. choice of courses:

Education, dentistry, food tech or culinary.


reynz May 3, 2013 at 8:38 am

I provided the links already. :-) I’m sure you’ll find one that fits you. Do some clicking please.

Shara May 12, 2013 at 4:43 pm

may scholarships po ba for undergrad.? Incoming 3rd year college na po this coming school year :)


reynz May 12, 2013 at 10:35 pm


Not really sure. The best would be to check with the scholarship grantors kung nag-a-allow sila. What I know is that – sa colleges or universities, meron silang mga Dean’s Listers, and I’m sure alam mo yan. Siguro pwede ka dyan if you meet the grade requirements.


lenndy December 1, 2013 at 10:19 am

Hi po,paano maggng scholar?Gusto ko po magaaral ulit. But,how? Thanks!


reynz December 2, 2013 at 11:26 am

paano maging scholar?

first – you have to learn how to read. for example, did you read my post?

second – you need to learn how to understand what you read, because if you have, you probably would not ask me that question.


joyce ann pilit May 15, 2013 at 6:17 pm

i am an incoming freshman college student in OLOPSC.and because i am an honor student of my previous school in highschool that’s why i get that seventy percent discount on my tuition fee . and i thought it would be for the whole year sem grant but i was told that it wasn’t actually. that discount was meant for one sem tution fee only. and now i am having a hard time to look for something that would help me fund my study—>scholarship. please help me by giving some of the preferences of scholarships available.thanks a lot,i am determine to really finish my study and got to continue it till the end!!!

jilsy June 22, 2014 at 10:13 pm

Great info, Ms.Reynz!
Hirap naman kasi sa iba diyan, gusto pa ata subuan, he3x, dole-out?
Knowledge is power…go, go, go… kung nauukol, bubukol!
These info will already lead you to achieve your dreams but do not expect that everything will drop to your palms.
Swerte swerte din yan, ang iba nga nag Working Students pa (just like my idol, VP Binay… free pluggin’ ba? :) )
Kidding aside, mga magbabarkada kami noon nagbalak pa ang tropa pumasok sa Seminary for subsidized schooling. Dahil walang wala talaga…Ayan ilan din pinagpala @ PMA & PNPA, mga officials na ibang kababata. Congrats amigos


Hope I got no typo error; 😉
TY, wishing you more luck in your journey to success!

jilsy June 22, 2014 at 10:49 pm

Btw, for govt workers… i was able to avail of the local Masteral studies scholarship grant from The Civil Service Commission’s Management Development Program. It’s offered every year. FREE Tuition + study leave on Full salary benefits (with service contract). That was almost a decade ago, i think we were around 72 grantees!

As of now, 100 undergraduate/graduate students avail of this annually.

Jilsy June 17, 2014 at 1:15 am

May I suggest for inclusion here: one of the best scholarship programs in the country, The TAN YAN KEE Foundation’s.

Once qualified after a competitive test, you got Free college tuition + “generous” stipend, parang it was around P50k yearly! Meron individual ATM sila… 80+ slots per year… when my two college kids were granted!

What I appreciate of this kind of scholarship is that it’s based on true merit or sustenance of minimum grades =QPI hanggang makatapos (usually with Latin H) na kayang kaya basta’t mayroon determination ang grantee and, of course, the NEEDED parental support. Btw, Di man lang kami hiningian ng Income Tax Return (overshot Class D at STPAP…kc supposedly full payee 😉 yes, my kids were UPCAT qualifiers but family decision overwhelmed). How bad@@While others cheat daw on ITRs just to avail of Brelibs of SUs benefits?

I can appreciate that this is a down to earth philanthropy and even a chance of immediate job prospect after graduation (yet, not obliged) perhaps at PAL, PNB, Foremost Farms, Century Park Sheraton, Fortune, etc. of The Tan’s Group of Companies.

Available in UE’s campuses only although I heard some slots may be extended to UST.

::Maraming salamat and also to Sir Lucio. Pagapalain po kayo lalo bagkus ang inyong loved ones::


Jilsy June 17, 2014 at 1:22 am

Opps, erratum: cash stipend is P25k per annum only although meron pa transpo and books allowances + college uniform subsidies


jilsy June 22, 2014 at 9:47 pm

My son, a TYK grantee, is soon to finish his college. Aside from the ERASMUS MUNDUS Scholarship Progam of the EU Comm which is opened to young Filipinos… he found these resources from our friendly neighboring countries, websites stated for further info:

c/o Ms. Reina Lazo, NZAS/Bato Balani Foundation Tel.# 8925462

C) Taiwan (5 slots; deadline, mid-April every year)
Almost $2k tuition/exp grant, for other details, you may contact thru Tel.# 8876688 loc.141.

Hope I got no typo error; 😉

Sa totoo lang, mga migz- diskarte todo para umasenso… sabi ng tiyo ko, L.L.B. (listo lang bata)! Kidding aside, applying for the competitive PMA, PNPA and/or PMMA examinations this August may give you the opportunity of a lifetime to be an officer, free college dyan + monthly allowances as a cadet equiv to enlistman til you graduate, instant job and young retirement (usually @ 56yo) expecting a modest pension and yet another civilian life afterwards esp if you can still avail grad/master programs on another scholarship ladder.
Just be brave enough and thwart negative perception (na delikado@military; life is always a calculated risk after all).

Commencing every Aug of the year, announcements are posted in respective websites…
PMA is Phil. Military Academy (@Baguio City).
PNPA is Phil. National Police Academy (@Sta.Rosa,Laguna?), military-like but civilian categorized.
PMMA is Phil. Merchant Marine Academy (@Zambales), paramilitary training to be seafarer officer someday for potential dollar earning$, graduates are immediately commissioned as Ensign in the Navy Reserve.
For other details, Google is your friend, anyway.

Hi! I’m from Surigao del Norte po and looking for scholarship that can help me finish my college. Walang-wala po kasi kami and sana may scholarship na makakatulong sa’ken pati na rin sa allowances. Di po sa pagmamayabang pero honored student po ako, di po ako mahirap turuan ng mga instructions and you can trust me.

Need for a scholarship grant para sa sis ko. She’s third year 2nd sem this october and until now nahihirapan ako saan kukuha ng tuition and allowance for her. She’s studying at LSPU ., spending 7000 for tution , 200 a day allowance .(kasi malayo ang bhay namin fr los banos). For some it will be a very small amount. Pero sa isang breadwinner like me who earns 10k a month. Ang hirap tlga. Ang hirap. Sinusuporthan ko pa yung xpenses/utilities sa bhay. My brother’a not working and my parents were separated. So pleaase if may alm po kayo pwede sa undergrad. inform me po-09262432022
