List of Passers: OWWA Scholarship Exam Results AY 2015-2016



MANILA, Philippines - The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) officially released recently the results of Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP) exam and Congressional Migrant Workers Scholarship Program (CMWSP) exam for AY 2015-2016 conducted last September 21, 2014 in DOST-designated centers in Manila and in the provinces.

OWWA has named the top 200 qualifiers or passers of the EDSP out of the 4,734 dependents of active member-OFWs who took the examinations, including the 346 dependents of member-OFWs in the Middle East.

The number of awardees under the EDSP was increased to 200 slots starting last year to give opportunities to deserving dependents of OWWA members to continue their studies through the scholarship programs offered by OWWA.

According to Administrator Calzado, scholars under EDSP are provided with a maximum education assistance of Php60,000.00 per school year, for bachelor degree courses in any college or university of their choice.

“We, at OWWA, are pleased every time that we hear about the achievements of our scholars considering the fact that one or both of their parents are not around to guide them in their studies. Be that as it may, they are able to draw inspiration and strength from the situation. This positive attitude and strong character made them more mature and responsible to do their best and make their parents proud of them, which made them truly laudable,” the OWWA Chief said.

Aside from EDSP, OWWA offers other scholarship and training grants to dependents of active OWWA members such as the Congressional Migrant Workers Scholarship Program (CMWSP), OFW Dependents Scholarship Program (ODSP), Education and Livelihood Assistance Program (ELAP), Skills-for-Employment Scholarship-Program (SESP), Skills Upgrading Program for Seafarers (SUP), and Information Technology Program.

This year, OWWA has named the 44 qualifiers out of the 352 examinees with scholarship grant funded by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).

The CMWSP is a 4-5 year scholarship program established under Republic Act 8042 which grants educational financial assistance to deserving migrant workers and/or their dependents, who intend to pursue courses in the field of science and technology identified by the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI). Scholars under the program receive assistance of P60,000.00 per school year.
