The Commission on Higher Education Region 3 (CHEDRO 3) announces the availability of 500 slots for Graduate Studies-Local for the academic year 2017-2018. The slots are open for all higher education institutions (HEIs) in the Region.

Aside from the full coverage of tuition and other fees, scholars will be receiving P20,000 (for masteral) and P28,000 (for doctoral) as monthly living allowance.

For those who have already completed their coursework, they can apply for Thesis or Dissertation Grant which will entitle them to receive a thesis and dissertation allowance amounting to P50,000.00 and P100,000.00 respectively, free tuition and other fees if they are enrolled in CHED-approved Delivering Higher Education Institution (DHEI), living allowance and transportation allowance if DHEI is in a different province from the Sending Higher Education Institution (SHEI).

The said grant is also open to both displaced teaching and non-teaching personnel, as well as to those separated from employment from their HEI because of the K to 12 Program implementation.

Other grants include Scholarship for Graduate Studies-Abroad, Professional Advancement, Sectoral Engagement, Senior High School Solo Grant, Institutional Development and Innovation, and Discovery Applied Research and Extension for Trans/Inter-disciplinary Opportunities (DARETO).
