COMMISSION ON HIGHER EDUCATION - NCR
TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF APPLICATION FOR CHED MERIT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
This is to clarify what has appeared in the media after my presentation in the Senate Committee of the Whole hearing yesterday, 21 May 2020.
The media reports gave the impression that all Commission on Higher Education (CHED) scholarship programs are being cut due to the implementation of National Budget Circular (NBC) No. 580 by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).
CHED will temporarily suspend the application of the CHED Merit Scholarship Program (CMSP) which has 2,467 new slots for incoming freshman college students for Academic Year 2020-2021.
