It is a stimulus package for both teaching and non-teaching professionals that includes partial tuition fee assistance and a teaching allowance.

Can I get a scholarship if my school is recognized but the results of the board exams have not yet been released?

No, because scholars must have passed the board exams in order to be appointed to SUCs. Because entrance requirements for scholarship grants are dependent on the PRC list of eligibilities, you cannot apply in advance since it’s not yet certain that you will pass the board exam. You can, however, submit a Certification of Eligibility from your dean’s office stating that you passed the Licensure Test and met all other admission requirements to enroll at their university.

Can I get a scholarship if my PGH (private hospital) is affiliated with a religious organization?

Unfortunately, CHED does not recognize graduates from private schools.

Tax period has nothing to do with scholarship grant. Tax forms are used for pay deduction while employed or for getting a business permit when self-employed.

If I want to apply as a scholar from Region X, where should the school be located?

The location of your school doesn’t really determine which area you belong to. You must be a domicile of the region in which you apply. If you are a scholarship applicant, your choice of university will be determined by your domicile, which is where you have lived the most in the last ten (10) years; if self-sponsored, it will be the location of your primary client or where your company has its main office; and if an employee, it will be at the primary worksite (office of the client or main office). A single domicile may be claimed. If you do not have a clear primary domicile, your present address will be used.

What about primary and secondary education?

CHED scholarship does not yet cover K-12 education. Applicants must therefore be enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree program for the current academic year.

Can I apply for a CHED Scholarship if I already work for the government?

Yes, but employees must present two copies of their credentials: one for DepEd validation and another for Ched evaluation. To avoid processing delays, employees must confirm that both copies are complete with all documentary requirements before submitting them. Simply follow the same instructions as if you were applying online. Similarly, it is preferable to apply while still in school because the process takes time and is more advantageous to you than while you are employed.

I am a private school graduate with a Master of Science in Education major in Mathematics. Is it true that because my school is a CHED-recognized private school, I am eligible to apply for scholarships?

No, graduates from private schools are not considered scholars for this program because CHED policy does not yet cover them. Only individuals who applied for and were offered scholarships through the PRC Scholarship Program but did not take use of them would be considered, providing they passed the board test in their particular discipline.

Can you believe I’m 22 years old? Is it still possible to apply for the CHED Scholar Grant?

To apply, applicants must be at least 18 years old before June 30, 2023.

I just had my birthday last March 15, 2023 and now am worried that I am no longer eligible as a scholar since I will turn 22 years old on or before the deadline of application: May 20, 2023. So, what should I do?

It would be preferable if you could submit a Certificate of Waiver from DepEd so that we can handle your request as soon as possible. Simply follow the same steps as if you were applying online. But, you can still apply if your birthdate is on or before May 20, 2023, even if you will turn 22 before the application deadline of June 30, 2023.

Does CHED currently have any new scholarship programs?

As of now, there is no news from CHED regarding scholarship programs; however, early planning is being done through the K to 12 Transition Program, which will provide financial assistance, placement, or job assistance to college students even before they graduate.
