CHED Scholarships For College Students


Poverty is not a hindrance to success. A very common quote when it comes to education. But in a reality, it is really difficult to go to school when you are poor and underprivileged since tuition and other school fees are increasing year per year aside from growing cost of living.  But if a person is really working hard to earn a degree, nothing is impossible, since education is the best investment for the future. Also, take note that the Free Education Act is already into law, so students in states universities and colleges can now enjoy free tuition from the government.  And the good thing for those who strive is that there are many scholarship programs now from the government where they can get educational assistance, if not free education.
