The GSIS Scholarship Program (GSP) grants scholarships to deserving children or dependents of low income members and pensioners since 1988 as part of the pension fund’s corporate social responsibility program. Children or dependents of active members and children of permanent total disability (PTD) pensioners who are less than 60 year old may be nominated to the program.
Active members are qualified to nominate scholars if they are permanent government employees who have at least 3 year government service, have a salary grade of 24 or below (or its equivalent job level) and have paid premium contributions for the last six months.
Single or married active members who are childless may nominate one child or dependent who rely on them for support, while PTD pensioners below 60 years old may nominate their children only.
The GSP application forms, requirements, and scholarship terms and conditions are available online at the GSIS website. In 2018, out of the 400 scholarship slots for children or dependents of low income GSIS members, about 40 slots were allotted to dependents of persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and solo or single parents.
Qualified GSIS members may nominate their children or dependent to the scholarship if they are incoming freshmen who have been accepted in any 4 or 5 year course or in priority courses list provided by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) recognized schools.
