The goal of the scholarship program is to help generate interest in agriculture among the youth, especially coffee farming.

Nestle Street Vendors Scholarship | Philippine Scholarship

Nestle Street Vendors Scholarship

Nestle awards scholarship to the children of street vendors selling their ice cream products. The street vendor beneficiaries are located in Metro Manila, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu City, Bulacan and Laguna. The program was launched in 2014 to recognize the hard work, performance and loyalty of its street vendors who have been the brand’s valuable partners in bringing Nestle Ice Cream to consumers in the residential communities.


Nestle is the world’s largest food and beverage company. It seeks to enhance the quality of life and contributing to a healthier future as well as to shape a better and healthier world.


As we are all aware, street food vending is an important source of informal employment here in the Philippines, where a large number of street vendors are typically located and roaming at the most convenient points for consumers. Observe how these street vendors can transform and invigorate the company’s operations.


However, street food vendors face a variety of constraints including lack of knowledge and skills in business, limited training opportunities, and restricted mobility that prevents them from improving their capacities. Street vendors selling Nestle products may not be new, but there is no denying that it still remains a huge trend even today. They serve to invigorate the Philippines’ streets.


They are the counterpart of mobile food trucks in other countries. This old culture of eating Nestle brand products through these street vendors has helped revolutionized the way the brand reaches its target customers. Street vendors role is challenging, competitive and requires patience and hard work to survive the heat and the rain.




Open to school aged children of qualified Nestle Ice Cream street vendors

Street vendor must have been Nestle street selling for at least a year and proven hardworking, dedicated and loyal




Provides educational grants of P10,000 to each college scholar and P5,000 to each elementary scholar

The scholarship will cover international travel, tuition, room and board, accident/sickness insurance, a small monthly stipend, and funding for books.



Program design

Global UGRAD participants will be enrolled in an undergraduate coursework at a U.S. college or university to allow ample opportunity for substantive interaction with U.S. faculty and student peers and for exposure to U.S. academic and classroom culture.


Global UGRAD participants will live on-campus with U.S. peers. The program will include a pre-departure orientation at US Embassy Philippines, a virtual arrival orientation, and an in-person end-of-program workshop in Washington, DC.


Students may indicate a preference for a fall or spring semester placement but final placement will be made by the implementing organization in conjunction with ECA.  (Please note: All students who are enrolled in pre-academic English will begin their program in the fall semester.)


The Global UGRAD Program is a non-degree program.  The Global UGRAD Program does not assist with credit transfers between participants’ host and home institutions.

Eligible fields

All academic fields of study are eligible.  Per J-1 visa regulations, interested applicants in medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacology or other clinical fields of study should be made aware that direct patient care, including animal care, is not permitted, and therefore academic coursework and/or program activities at participating US institutions may be limited.



Host institutions

Students cannot choose their host campus.  The implementing organization will place students at the most appropriate host campus based on students’ academic interests.


The Global UGRAD Program includes a diverse roster of host campuses throughout the United States, including colleges and universities in rural and urban areas, and Minority Serving Institutions.



Pre-academic English

Global UGRAD provides one semester of pre-academic English language training to students who need it.  Students needing pre-academic English will receive English language training during the fall semester and continue with coursework in their fields of study during the spring semester.


Please contact the US embassy or Fulbright Commission in your country for any questions related to the eligibility of this program. Global UGRAD is sponsored by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and administered by World Learning on behalf of ECA.

Fellows may enroll in any of a large number of universities all over the world, including in their country of residence. The program will provide placement assistance to the fellows.


The IFP supports the fellows in undertaking appropriate language study and training in research and computer skills prior to graduate school enrolment.


It provides orientation sessions for the new ones and allows participation in learning and discussion activities of the current fellows for information and exchange networks.


The IFP is the largest single program ever supported by the Ford Foundation. It is a program of the New York City based International Fellowships Fund.
