DOLE Scholarship Grants | Philippine Scholarship

To help improve the employability of an underprivileged student or a job seeker who does not have enough resources to upgrade his or her qualifications through training and further studies, the DOLE and its attached agencies offer scholarship grants to assist them in their desire to increase their chances of landing a decent job.


DOLE scholarship grants are available for the less privileged students and jobseekers who want to make themselves fit or suited to the job they desire to have. The agency sees the need to arm the students and jobseekers with the proper skills and competencies required by companies in industry sectors that are currently identified as having the most number of manpower demand.


Aside from offering training programs to help them acquire required skills and relevant experience, DOLE offer scholarship grants since not all students and jobseekers have the financial means to enroll in these programs, such as the Training for Work Scholarship Program (TWSP) and the Private Education Student Financial Assistance (PESFA) offered by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).


OFWs who are members of the OWWA can take advantage of the different scholarships attached to their dependents. In the event that the scholar signifies his or her interest to pursue higher education, Tuloy Kolehiyo, an extension of TAP, shall help the student realize that goal.


You are to inquire about the scholarship grants of DOLE through TESDA, OWWA, and other government agencies. However, DOLE is actively handling their SPES program, which you can apply through PESO in your local area.



WODP Scholars

DOLE supports the Workers Organization Development Program (WODP), which serves as a mechanism in strengthening trade unions and other worker’s organizations. It provides educational opportunities to union officers and members, including their dependents. The scholarship is expected to motivate the workers towards greater productivity.


DOLE vows to continue granting the program so it can better assist the unions and their dependents in pursuing higher education. The WODP offers two types of scholarship grants, namely the Isabelo Delos Reyes (IDR) Grant and the Regular Scholarship grant that allows courses for master and bachelor degrees, technical and short term courses, and review courses for professional examinations.


The WODP Regular Scholarship is granted to officers and members of the worker’s organization for a maximum amount of P16,000 per semester for graduate studies. The IDR Grant provides dependents of officers and members of the worker’s organization a maximum of P29,000 per semester for the undergraduate studies.

DOLE WODP Scholarship

The WODP Scholarship seeks to strengthen trade unionism and other workers organization by promoting their capabilities as independent and active partners in national development. It supports worker empowerment through the provision of accessible information facilities as well as training, including skills training for livelihood and educational assistance.


The applicants will be interviewed, screened, evaluated, and tested.  In 2012, DOLE extended the grant to the workers dependents. The scholarship provides P3,000 monthly stipend, P2,500 for book allowance per sem, and P500 per unit cost of tuition and miscellaneous fees.


The monthly stipend and book allowance shall be released to the scholars directly, while the tuition and miscellaneous fees shall be paid directly to the school.


The WODP is a DOLW flagship program in line with the DOLE’s mandate to strengthen trade unionism and other workers organizations by promoting their capabilities as independent and active partners in the national development.


The DOLE extends coverage of the WODP scholarship grants to legitimate dependents of officers and members of locals/chapters of independent labor federations and independent unions pursuant to Department Order 20-02 on the Supplemental Guideline in Accessing WODP Funds.


The Department of Labor & Employment is responsible for the implementation of policies and programs that promote gainful employment opportunities, develop human resources, protect the welfare and advancement of the workers, and maintain harmonious industrial relations between and among the workers and employers in Metro Manila.

Juanito I. King Foundation Inc. Scholarship Programs | Philippine Scholarship

Juanito I. King Foundation (JIKFI) Scholarship

The JIKFI education program supports college scholarships for underprivileged students, TechVoc and skills training, and education enhancement that includes trainings for public school teachers and computerization of public schools. The JIKFI scholars enjoy the benefits of free seminars, team buildings, Christmas parties, volunteering to different CSR activities, guidance counseling and buddy tutorial. Early 2011, the Scholarship Program was defined as Education Program. The JIKFI branches its services from providing Scholarships to inclusion of Technical-Vocational & Skills Training and Education Enhancement Projects.


Founded in May 1991, Juanito Ibanez king and his children decided to centralize and organize the family’s response to request for assistance from both individuals and groups seeking financial support. The Foundation has since expanded the scholarship program in terms of size and coverage to respond to the ever-growing need for educational assistance, and consequently benefiting deserving students both inside and outside the company.


It serves as a resource agency to assist people in need, but as an implementing agency, with the launching of the Scholarship Program. This program is an affirmation of their family’s commitment to help the then thirty-strong workforce of King’s Quality Foods, Inc. and Nito’s Auto Supply put their children through college, with the belief that education helps break the bonds of poverty!


The Foundation has since expanded the scholarship program in terms of size and coverage to respond to the ever-growing need for educational assistance, and consequently benefiting deserving students both inside and outside the company. The Foundation has further defined its commitment to service when it initiated the operation of a mobile dental van in collaboration with the Cebu Dental Chapter (a branch of the Philippine Dental Association) in 2003. The mobile dental van currently provides free dental services to poor and marginalized communities in Cebu and neighboring provinces five (5) days a week.


It is with this sincere commitment to social responsibility that through the years, JIKFI has continued to provide financial assistance to various institutions, programs, activities, projects and initiatives for the advancement of education, arts and culture, sports, health and nutrition, social welfare and development, church and family welfare, business and ecology. Moreover, the Foundation intends to continue implementing its education and health programs for its current beneficiaries, and then aspire to be more relevant, and expand to wider horizons in order to see the Foundation’s goals achieved and its vision-mission fulfilled.



Education program

JIKFI’s education program includes College Scholarships for underpriviliged students, Tech-Voc and Skills Training, and Education Enhancement including trainings for public school teachers and computerization of public schools.


JIKFI scholars enjoy the benefits of free seminars, team buildings, Christmas parties, volunteering to different CSR activities, guidance counseling and buddy tutorial.


Keeping true to the vision of the late Founder, Juanito I. King in breaking the bondage of poverty through education, the Juanito I. King Foundation, Inc. (JIKFI) recently formed a partnership with Saint Theresa’s College—Cebu (STC-Cebu). Attended by JIKFI’s Executive Director Mr. Kenneth Raymund H. King and STC-Cebu Dean of College, Sr. Rosie Mendoza, ICM, the signing of the ‘Memorandum of Agreement’ was done last June 7, 2013.


Today, along with its growth and the capacity to serve more, JIKFI provides more scholarship opportunities. The recent milestone with STC-Cebu enables JIKFI to provide 4 more scholarship grants to underprivileged but deserving students who are interested in taking up BS in Social Works.


The scholars are automatically registered as members of the JIKFI Scholars Guild (JSG). As a part of the current pool of more than 60 scholars, they are entitled to member privileges such as skills training, personality development, values formation, team building and buddy tutorial activities. These activities are specifically organized by JIKFI to provide a holistic formation for all its scholars.



Further reading,



Founded in May 1991, the Juanito I.King Foundation, Inc. (JIKFI) was conceptualized by Juanito Ibañez King and his children in order to centralize and organize the family’s response to requests for assistance from both individuals and groups seeking financial support.


Its humble beginnings date back to the late 1950’s, when Mr. King slowly started to acquire real estate through earnings from profitable business ventures. Through hard work and perseverance, Mr. King managed to procure profit from his accumulated property holdings.


Thus, in January of 1979, together with his sons, Robin, Ricarido, Luis and Mario, he set up what is now Juanito King & Sons, Inc. After two successful projects, Villa Solana in Talisay and Villa Solana in Consolacion, Juanito King & Sons, Inc. launched its real estate arm, King Properties, in December of 2011.
