The 4P’s Scholarship Program under the Expanded Students’ Grants-in-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGP-PA) is an educational grant which gives priority to the beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) by providing them opportunity to get college education, increase their chance to get better employment in the future and ultimately uplift the lives of their family so that they become contributors to national development.
The ESGP-PA is implemented by the CHED, DSWD, Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC), and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
