Priority will be given to PhD and MS fellowships directly aligned with the niches of each of UP’s constituent universities, as well as support for MS/PhD sandwich programs to enable the pursuit of theses/dissertations in foreign universities. The length of a PhD Fellowship that can be enjoyed is up to five years. The program supports tuition, salary, hiring of a teacher substitute, as well as access to a start-up grant of up to P2.5 M upon completion of the PhD (subject to availability of funds). For foreign study, the roundtrip airfare and living allowance would also be covered.
The fellowships are part of the UP Faculty, REPS and Administrative Staff Development Program (formerly called the UP Faculty and REPS Development Program)
