Scholarships in Teacher Education Program

The Philippines Business for Education (PBEd), in partnership with the Australian Government, launched the Scholarships in Teacher Education Program to Upgrade Teacher Quality in the Philippines (STEP UP) in December 2014.

Most of the total grant will go to the students as part of their scholarship benefits. These include full tuition and miscellaneous fees coverage, increased monthly stipend of P 4,000.0 from P 2,000.00, and allowances for book, uniform, dormitory, thesis or practice teaching, LET review and examination, among others. Mentoring activities shall be conducted regularly to monitor and enrich the learnings of the scholars. These include one-on-one mentoring sessions, seminars, workshops, and other activities.
