De La Salle University offers full scholarship with P35,000 monthly allowance to PhD students

De La Salle University (DLSU) announced that it’s offering full tuition plus monthly stipends for full-time doctorate students.

In a Facebook post, DLSU said that through the Saint Miguel Febres Cordero PhD Scholarship Program, there will be a full tuition and miscellaneous fees waiver, as well as an allowance of P35,000 a month for four years.

Fifteen scholars will be chosen from any DLSU PhD program, including those in straight or MA-PhD programs.

The primary requirement is that a student is admitted to any DLSU PhD program. An endorsement from a faculty member of the student’s desired department will be an advantage, according to the university.

The scholarships, which will undergo a competitive selection process, aren’t needs-based. This means that students in any financial category may apply.

There’s no service requirement after graduation, DLSU added. No penalties will be imposed if an applicant fails to complete the program within the recommended four academic years. After that period, however, the waiver will cease.

DLSU shared a list of its PhD programs on its website.

The scholarship was named after the Ecuadorian saint who was a professed member of the La Sallian Brothers. Cordero promoted education and evangelization in his hometown and even during his transfer to Spain.
