GOOD NEWS! (but not-so-good news to those who won’t be eligible hehe)
The Educational Loan Assistance of GSIS is separate from the GSIS Scholarship Program. The agency will no longer raffle off the scholarship but will go through a screen process.
All GSIS members with premium payments of at least 6 months, currently employed in the government with a Salary Grade below 24 are eligible.
Members can nominate scholar but the nominee must be child of the GSIS members and must be an incoming freshman accepted in the schools identified by GSIS.
For list of schools contact GSIS branch near you. Most likely those schools accredited by CHED.
GSIS will prioritize nominees of parents with the lowest grade.
