C. CHED-HEDP Faculty Development Program

The CHED-HEDP Faculty Development Program seeks to improve the quality of higher education in the Philippines by upgrading the academic qualifications of tertiary faculty to master’s and doctorate degrees in certain priority fields.

Scholarship grants are mostly for master’s programs on a part-time non-thesis mode. A limited number of scholarships are available for the full-time non-thesis master’s, master’s with thesis, and doctorate degrees, as well as the one year Ph.D. sandwich dissertation grants abroad. 

The scholarship provides full tuition and other fees, a monthly stipend, book allowance, transportation allowance for those coming from distant places, as well as thesis and dissertation grants. Sending Higher Education Institutions (SHEI) may also apply for substitute assistance in the case of faculty who are on full-time study grants.

To qualify, applicants must be Filipino, full-time tertiary faculty members in any of the Commission on Higher Education’s (CHED) priority SHEIs, and teaching in any of the following priority fields: English, Information Technology, Mathematics, Natural Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), Social Sciences (History, Economics, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, & Anthropology), and Engineering. Scholarship applicants must first secure admission to an accredited delivering institution. Qualified faculty who are already enrolled in the accredited delivering institution may also apply for the scholarship. The Ateneo de Davao University is an accredited delivering institution for these scholarships.

Interested applicants may get more information at the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs or log on to (Click on Projects).

Note: Faculty development Grants under the Commission on Higher Education for non-Ateneo faculty can be inquired from the Graduate School of School of Arts and Sciences. Please contact +63 (82) 221.2411 local 8403 and look for Dr. Marlina C. Lacuesta, Ph.D., Assistant Dean of Graduate School.
