The Program aims to provide low-income GSIS members the opportunity to send their children to colleges and universities which will provide them quality education.
The permanent employees of the Department of Education (DepEd) including its attached agencies who are regular members of GSIS at the time of application, with at least three years in service, salary grade of 24 or below (or its equivalent job level) may nominate their children to the GSP until May 31, 2013. The nominee of a parent-member who has the lowest annual basic salary will be given priority in the scholarship grant. The nominee must be an incoming college freshman who has been accepted in any of the schools identified by the pension fund.
For AY 2013-2014, a total of 200 slots will be granted. Each scholar will be entitled to the actual cost of tuition and miscellaneous fees not exceeding Twenty Thousand Pesos (P 20,000.00) and a monthly stipend of Two Thousand Pesos (P 2,000.00). The scholars may opt to take a four or five year course, provided that they meet the scholastic requirements set by the school for student retention.
The complete list of GSIS-accredited educational institutions, the application form and the program’s guidelines are downloadable in the GSIS website: www.gsis.gov.ph or may be secured from any GSIS Office.
