On Monday, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte announced that the government would give a one-time grant of P30,000 as educational assistance to college students who are children of overseas Filipino workers.

The President said the grant is for college-level children of displaced, non-returning, repatriated, or deceased OFWs affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Duterte said the subsidy would be given to a qualified beneficiary “enrolled or is intending to enroll” in a state or local university or college as well as other private higher education institutions recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

“Ang tulong po sa edukasyon sa mga anak niyo nito is a one-time grant of P30,000. The project will be allotted with the amount of P1 billion which will benefit about 33,000 students from OFW families,” he said.

OFWs may get further details on the assistance from the CHED, the Department of Labor and Employment, or the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.
