The Commission on Higher Education Regional Office 2 (CHED RO2) together with the ACT-CIS Partylist conducted a ceremonial distribution of financial grant under the Tulong Dunong Program – Tertiary Education Subsidy (TDP-TES) program on November 3, 2023 in Cauayan City, Isabela.

CHED RO2 OIC-Director IV, Atty. Marco Cicero F. Domingo, led and facilitated the distribution of the financial grant to 12 new TDP-TES student-grantees who are currently pursuing their respective undergraduate degrees in various HEIs located in Isabela province. Likwise, Senator Raffy Tulfo and ACT-CIS Partylist Representative, Hon. Jocelyn Tulfo, graced the activity and personally met with the student-grantees.

TDP-TES program is a subsidy to support at least the partial cost of tertiary education of Filipino students who are enrolled in State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), CHED-recognized Local Universities and Colleges (LUCs), and Private HEIs. Student-grantees of this program are entitled to receive a full academic-year grant amounting to PhP15,000.00 subject to semestral validation and availability of funds. (A. Maguigad Jr.)
