The Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) has rolled out another scholarship program for 14 schools in the Philippines, as featured by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on their Facebook page. The scholarship program is called DBP Resources for Inclusive and Sustainable Education (DBP RISE), and is meant to support financially-challenged students taking up “priority courses” such as Engineering, Information Technology, Medicine, Education, Forestry, Marin Biology, Environmental Sciences, Accountancy, Architecture, and Real Estate Management.
