BBM-Sara to restore CHED scholarship program

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — The tandem of presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and vice presidential aspirant Sara Duterte vowed to allocate funds for the suspended scholarship program under the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) if they win in this year’s elections.

The CHED suspended its scholarship program (CSP) for incoming first year college students due to lack of funds.

In a statement, the camp of Marcos and Duterte said they would restore the suspended program if they win.

“The UniTeam stands firm in its belief that investing in the education of our youth should be a priority. As such, the CSP is one program that we are keen on restarting if given the opportunity to serve by our people,” the statement read.

The tandem underscored the need to invest in the education of the youth.

“Instead of them being the first in line to sacrifice in these budget cuts, let us make sure that we have adequate funding to sustain their studies because from their midst will come our future experts and leaders,” they said.

They would also implement a “robust” digital infrastructure program to support the digital shift in education and commerce, the statement added.
