Did You Know? DSWD Offers Cash Assistance to Working Students, Students Whose Parents Are OFWs

As well as students of state colleges and vocational schools.

College education is very important, but admittedly, it can get considerably expensive. Aside from tuition fees, students are also required to shell out money for other types of expenses like school supplies and other miscellaneous fees.

While plenty of students have ventured into student-friendly initiatives that allow them to earn extra money on the side, there are others who simply cannot afford to do so. The good news is that there are a few government programs that aim to extend assistance to those who are especially in need.

For instance, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) launched a program called Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS). Through the program, DSWD aims to provide educational assistance to the following:

  • indigent college working students
  • college students studying in vocational/technical schools, state colleges, and universities
  • students whose parents are Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs)
  • students experiencing a difficult situation due to parents being displaced from employment or due to a death of a family member

If you are eligible for the grant, you may submit the following requirements to a DSWD office near you:

  • valid ID
  • Enrollment Assessment Form or Certificate of Enrollment or Registration
  • validated school ID of the student-beneficiary
  • Statement of Account for College Students
  • Barangay Certificate of Residency or Certificate of Indigency

Applicants will be screened and invited for an interview. Should they be accepted, they will be granted P3,500 for educational assistance under the said program.
