Scholarship & Grants in the Philippines

It's so difficult to get a job here in the Philippines. The competition in the market is too tough. And I know that it will be more difficulty to apply for work if you don't have a high school / college diploma. Reality bites.... Philippines is still one of the poorest country in the world. However, I believe that there are still a lot of intelligent people who deserve to be in a classroom, reading a book instead of selling sampaguita flowers on the streets.

I used to think that I can't go to high school, much more to enter college. Guess what? God answered my prayers and gave me a guardian angel in the form of my teachers who helped me find a scholarships. I also know some of my friends who finished their studies by being a working student. Thus, there is always a solution to a problem.

The point is, there are ways for you to get the diploma you have been dreaming about. You just have to have the guts to find a solution (at times, you also need to find the right connection) and pray a lot. With this in mind, I tried to search for the scholarships available to our young Filipino citizen. Here is my list: - This is actually a list program/company sites that was collated by the Philippine Goverment.

Panasonic Scholarship Grant

Meralco Foundation

University of the Philippines Scholarship Program


***Holy Angel University (HAU) Scholarship & Grants

***Angeles University Foundation (AUF) Scholarships

***Angeles University Foundation School of Medicine Scholarships

***Republic Central Colleges (RCC) Scholarship Grants

I know, that a big percentage of the people who are worthy of the scholarships may not even have the chance to read my blog. So if you reading this and know someone who deserve any of these grants, please do inform them. You'll never know that your little act of kindness will change the person's life.

If you also know other scholarships or grants here in the Philippines, please feel free to put a comment and I'll add them on the list.
