DepEd To Provide Financial Assistance For Grade 11 and 12 Students





GOOD NEWS! DepEd will be REOPENING the Voucher Program Application to enable more Grade 10 completers to have the option to enroll in SHS in private schools, private universities and colleges, local or state universities and colleges or technical vocational institutions for school year 2016-2017. 


Applications will be accepted from April 22 to May 6, 2016 only. The deadline is non-extendable. Results will be announced on or before May 20, 2016.



After the Philippines has adapted its education system to K12, the number of years kids have to spend in school  increased from 10 years to 12 years.




In order to help families with the education and tuition cost for the 2 added years in school, DepEd introduced the Senior High School Voucher Program (SHS VP) as a mechanism to provide financial assistance to senior high school students.

Through the SHS VP, the DepEd engages the non-DepEd Senior High School providers to enroll qualified voucher recipients from both Public and Private Junior High Schools. Once qualified voucher recipients are enrolled in non-DepEd Senior High School providers, the DepEd will provide assistance to these students through a voucher subsidy paid to the non-DepEd Senior High School provider.
All students who pass Grade 10 by March 2016 are eligible for the program. Those who are studying in public schools are automatically a Voucher program beneficiary. If a Grade 10 student is from private school, the private school he/she must be attending is part of Education Service Contracting (ESC) program of the Department of Education. This may be verified at the school's registrar.






 Students may apply online or through their school. The following are the steps highlighted by the Department of Education on how the students should process their application.
