Scholarship Grant Program (SGP)

Every year, TPEF reaches out to remote rural areas across the country to grant college education scholarship to 6 youths from poor families. Poverty situation of an area is one major element in selecting the scholars. It forges partnership with existing local community development organizations, non-government organizations and/or Department of Education offices in identifying a public high school as the scholarship testing and interview venue in search for potential scholars. It provides equal opportunities to all students including “returnees” or out-of-school youths and indigenous peoples. Scholarship grant is also awarded to 4 beneficiaries of ordinary seafarers and staff of Torm Shipping Philippines.

Qualifying examination and interview for candidates are regularly administered from October to November in the rural area selected by TPEF and prior to their entry in college. Orientation about the foundation’s programs and value formation workshop in the area are provided among new scholars with their parents.
