The DSWD educational assistance program is financial aid for the education of certain eligible people.
Who is qualified to apply for DSWD’s educational assistance program?
The announcement from DSWD Secretary Erwin Tulfo states that the people qualified to avail the DSWD educational assistance program are the following:
- Working student
- Has no family/Living with relative
- Child of a solo parent
- Has parents with no source of living
- Child of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs)
- Children of Persons With Disabilities (PWDs)
- Children of HIV victims
- Victim of Domestic Abuse
- Victims of natural disasters
Three children from each household are entitled to apply and enroll in the DSWD Educational Assistance Program. Of course, telling DSWD what’s going on doesn’t seem right. They must request the department to verify and approve their application.
How much do interested applicants get?
To all parents and students who are inquiring about how much they’re going to get, elementary students will receive P1,000; P2,000 for high school students; P3,000 for Senior High School, and last but definitely not the least vocational/college level students will receive P4,000.
