Philippine Veterans Association Office (PVAO) Scholarship

As a way of giving back to the blood, sweat, and tears shed by our Philippine veterans, Republic Act 7696 states that they’re entitled to educational assistance. Either their spouse or child can benefit from it. This is the least we can do, tbh.

Are you a veteran’s beneficiary? If yes, then you can enjoy this program’s perks in any government-authorized school, college, or university. For Cebu in particular, you can check out CDU to avail of this scholarship!

  • Miscellaneous fees (e.g. athletic, library, laboratory, medical fees)
  • Military training
  • Diploma and graduation fees


State Scholarship Program

Another scholarship offered at CDU is the merit-based State Scholarship Program granted by the Commission on Higher Education(CHED). In hopes of providing quality higher education to underprivileged but deserving Filipinos, this program gives full, partial, or Private Education Student Financial Assistance (PESFA) scholarships to students depending on which CHED-given criteria they meet.

Check out the scholarship’s eligibility requirements on their official website or visit the CHED regional office nearest you!

What’s in it for you?

  • Full scholarship (Php 30,000)
  • Partial scholarship (Php 15,000)
  • PESFA scholarship (Php 15,000)


We look forward to the day when no child is robbed of the opportunity to study just because they lack access to school. Much less pay fees to be enrolled in a class. But while we’re still on our way to that dream, grab every opportunity to get educational assistance! Scholarships are one of the best ways to do that! What are you waiting for?
