It seems like more and more scholarships are opening up for people who want to further their studies. In January, Japan started accepting applications for the Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship Program; so did the Stipendium Hungaricum, a scholarship program founded by the Hungarian Government. On Tuesday, February 9, the Embassy of France to the Philippines announced that they'll be offering scholarships to Filipinos who want to pursue master's or doctorate degrees at French public higher education institutions in France.

So you have two options: the PhilFrance-DOST Scholarships and the PhilFrance Scholarships.
