GSIS Scholarship 2013 – 2014

25 Mar

Text from GSIS website.

GSIS President and General Manager Robert Vergara today announced that the pension fund is accepting applications under the pension fund’s College Scholarship Program (GSP) in which 200 slots are available for Academic Year 2013-2014.

The program provides an opportunity for state workers to send their children to colleges and universities that provide quality education.

“We introduced amendments on the program to make it more equitable and responsive particularly to our low-income members,” Vergara said.

Previously, the mode of choosing scholars was done through an electronic raffle. Under the new guidelines, the nominee of a parent-member who has the lowest annual basic salary will be given priority in the scholarship grant.

Further, the nominee must be a child of the member and an incoming freshman accepted in schools accredited by the Commission on Higher Education. The list of schools is found in the GSIS Scholarship Program Application Requirements.

The scholar of the program will be entitled to

  • the actual cost of tuition
  • miscellaneous fees not exceeding Php20,000
  • a monthly stipend of Php2,000.

The distribution of the 200 scholarship slots per region will be proportionate to the number of GSIS members in each region.

In Luzon,

GSIS will select

  • 41 scholars from NCR;
  • five (5) from CAR;
  • 10 from Region 1;
  • eight (8) from Region 2;
  • 17 from Region 3;
  • 19 from Region 4-A;
  • six (6) from Region 4-B;
  • and 11 from Region 5.

In Visayas,

  • 16 from Region 6;
  • 12 from Region 7;
  • and 10 from Region 8.

In Mindanao,

  • seven (7) each from ARMM and Region 9;
  • 10 from Region 10;
  • eight (8) from Region 11;
  • seven (7) from Region 12;
  • and six (6) from Region 13.

To date, the pension fund has awarded a total of 1,692 scholarship grants since the inception of the program in 1998. From this number, 585 active scholars are currently enrolled in various colleges and universities nationwide as of March this year.

Members may obtain a GSP application form from any GSIS branch office or download it: The GSIS College Scholarship Program for the Academic Year 2013-2014
