Students with full-merit scholarships have to maintain a grade of at least 85% while half-merit scholars are required to maintain a grade of at least 80%.

CHED scholars are required to study full-time and must be regular students in a recognized private or public university in the Philippines.

Warning! Failure to maintain the required GWA is a ground for termination of the scholarship. However, you can ask for reconsideration within 15 days from the notice of your GWA.

If you intend to transfer to another school or shift to another course, you need to secure approval first from the Regional Office.

The result of the CHED Scholarship Program for the Academic Year 2021–2022 was determined through the ranking system and the availability of slots. The list of qualifiers was announced by sending individual emails to each of the qualifiers.
