Faculty members from the College of Arts and Sciences receive scholarships from national and international institutions to pursue their graduate degrees that will further equip the College and the University with experts in various fields.

The said faculty members are as follows:

Foreign Scholarship:


The University of Hong Kong Postgraduate Scholar & CHED Partial Scholarship Support for Foreign Studies

To pursue the Joint PhD in Sociolinguistics and Discourse Analysis at the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR & King's College London, United Kingdom

Commission on Higher Education (CHED) K-12 Transition Local Scholarship:

BRIAN D. VILLAVERDE - PhD in Communication, University of the Philippines Diliman

KHRISTALYN V. FRAGINAL - PhD in Development Communication, University of the Philippines Los Banos

MARK PONCE - MA in Mathematics, University of the Philippines Diliman

Second Batch:

GINO CABRERA - PhD Psychology, Far Eastern University Manila

APRILLETTE C. DEVANADERA - PhD in Applied Linguistics, De La Salle University Manila


The said scholars will be on full study leave during their normative study period. The scholarship package includes full tuition and miscellaneous fee reimbursement, travel and living allowance, and thesis assistance amounting to Php 50,000 for MA and Php 100,000 for PhD (for CHED-sponsored local scholarships).

In the case of CHED-sponsored scholarships, prior to the award of scholarship, the documents submitted by the nominees were first screened by an independent body of CHED. The scholarship opportunity is in response to the country's shift to a 12-year basic education curriculum which results in low to no enrolment in Colleges and Universities.

Scholarship recipients from the College comprise the largest percentage from those of other colleges or units of the University.
