GSIS Educational Subsidy Program (GESP) for 10,000 College Students (Any Year Level)

The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) will be giving PhP 10,000 educational subsidy to 10,000 children and dependents of its low-income members through the GSIS Educational Subsidy Program (GESP).

GSIS Official Statement on GESP

According to Rolando Ledesma Macasaet, GSIS Chairman and concurrent Acting President and General Manager, these are the objectives for the said program:

  • To provide wider access to quality college education to the marginalized sector; and
  • To augment the means of its low-income members in sending their children or dependents to college through the grant of a P10,000 yearly allowance.

“We will select 10,000 children or dependents of members with the lowest annual basic salary from among the applicants nationwide.” – RL Macasaet

The GESP also complements Republic Act No. 10931 or the 2017 Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education which provides free tuition and miscellaneous fees to enrollees of state colleges and universities.
