CHED Scholarship


Disclaimer: I am not from CHED. I am an employee of a BPO company and a student as well. I am posting this based on my experience, on the information I read from the agency’s website, Twitter and FB accounts. My aim is to be able to help financially-challenged students to know more about this program because I understand how it feels to be in need of scholarship and financial assistance to be able to finish our degree. If there is any wrong info here, please feel free to correct me by posting a comment below or by emailing me at Thank You!

1. When is the start and deadline of the application for CHED Scholarship and Financial Assistance?

~~ Usually the application runs from March through April. Watch out for CHED’s announcement around February or March.

2. Does CHED Scholarship and Financial Assistance cover 2-year and short term courses?

~~ NO. CHED is for degree courses. Vocational and short terms courses are handled by TESDA.

3. Does CHED have priority courses?

~~ YES. Applicants may choose among the preferred courses of CHED. So if you want to take up ASTRONOMY course and it is not one of the preferred courses by CHED then you cannot be a scholar of CHED under that course. Either you take up that course and forfeit your scholarship or be a scholar under a course preferred by CHED.

4. If I get accepted as a CHED Scholar, can I enroll to any school I wish?

~~ Yes you may. But the school must be accredited by CHED. 

5. How does CHED choose the applicants to be accepted as scholars?

~~ I have no idea 🙂 But I believe each Region has allocated number of slots for the scholars. So my guess is, they look up to the financial capacity and the academic records of the applicant. The poorer and the brighter you are, chances are higher!

6. When does CHED release the results?

~~ To be honest, I don’t know too! Hehe.  They should have the results released before June so the applicants may know if they get accepted or not before classes begin. But geeez, in 2005 I got my letter from CHED middle of June. In fact, I have enrolled myself already by the time I received their notification.

7. How is the result released?

~~ CHED will send out letters informing you of the status of your application.

8. Where do I submit the application and the requirements

~~ Always at your Regional Office. Click here to check the list of CHED Offices in the country.

    if i took a special exam for ncae. we are allowed and we received the result at may. but the scholarship already ended in april 30 and i still want to avail. how can i avail in ched scholarship?

    • rodel romeo June 4, 2012 at 8:35 am #

      need answers asap..

    • Precious West June 4, 2012 at 8:39 am #

      The deadline has ended. You may apply next year instead.

      • rodel romeo June 4, 2012 at 9:07 am #

        d na pwede habol? tutal late din naman lumabas ang ncae result namin eh. pero pwede pa ako next year? mag sesecond year college na ako nun

      • Precious West June 5, 2012 at 3:06 am #

        I don’t think so they would entertain your application any longer. There were even applicants not entertained even before April 30. And one will apply first week of June? I don’t think that stands a chance. But you can contact your local CHED if you want.

    • Precious West July 16, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

      Hi Carlo,

      Not sure with the present one. In my time, 2 is okay. Anyway, CHED will brief you about it.

      So you got accepted as a scholar for Half Merit?

  5. Ava:DDD July 24, 2012 at 7:13 am #

    Pano po kaya kung yung priority courses ay hindi nasunod dahil sa ilang factors? Pwede pa po kayang humingi ng reconsideration?

    my son got above 90 percentile sa NCAE kaso di siya top ten kasi nasa special class siya in a laboratory high school where competition is intense. Pwede pa kaya siya avail ng full scholarship? Saka ung 15K/sem ba e alawans un at covered na lahat ng scholarship ang tuition, miscelaneous and other fees niya? Thanks!

    Hi, second year high school lang ako at nagtratrabaho sa Kuwait gusto ko po sana na makapag exam at ng magka diploma. Sa kahirapan po kasi ng buhay noon kaya di na ako nakapagpatuloy ng pag- aaral. Kaya gusto ko po sana na makatapos ng pag aaral mahabang panahon na rin kasi akong nahinto. Sana po ay matulungan nyo ako.

  10. arjay October 16, 2012 at 2:36 am #

    Makaka avail po ba ako ng scholarship kung 60% lang ang nakuha ko sa gsa(ncae)? Di ko po kasi akalain na dapat mataas pala yung percentage na kailangan. Sabi po kasi ng teacher namin ay yung ncae ay dun malalaman ung occupational interest mo kaya d ko ginalingan. Pero ung total grade ko po sa Form 138 ay 92%.. Pwede po ba ako maka avail ng scholarship ng ched nyan?

    Hi Precious West! I’m just wondering if CHED scholarship is still existing? I applied last March 2012, one sem had passed yet I received no news about the scholarship. I tried to email all the possible email address that ched gave but I got no reply. Can I ask for a valid and official email address of CHED? I don’t want to think that they were purposely ignoring my mails so I want to know the valid address. Thanks a bunch!

    • Precious West February 17, 2013 at 4:15 am #

      Perhaps your new course is not one of CHED’s priorities.
