Scholarship grants posted at DoLE website

The Department of Labor and Employment has announced that as one of the members of the government’s Exchange Visitor Program (EVP) Committee, it has agreed to post the notice of availability of scholarship grants under the Enhancement Training Sponsorship Project (ETSP) of the EVP to the department’s website.

In a report to Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz, DoLE International Labor Affairs Bureau (ILAB) Director Ma. Celeste Valderrama said the ETSP is one of the efforts of the government to enhance the skills pool of the Philippines while allowing Filipino professionals to find better income overseas to support their families.

Valderrama said the EVP Committee of the Philippines is now accepting applications for scholarship grants under its ETSP project which is funded by the EVP participants who are undertaking alternative arrangements in lieu of the two-year home country residency requirement of the EVP.
