Department of Education (DepEd), in support of Gokongwei Brothers Foundation’s vision to create a lasting impact on 1,000,000 learners and 10,000 educators by 2025, released DepEd Advisory no. 032, series of 2022 in May 2022 to announce the call for applications for TeachSTEM Scholarships Program for the A.Y. 2022 to 2023.
The said memorandum titled, “Gokongwei Brothers Foundation TeachSTEM for College Degree and Master's Degree Scholarship Program,” echoes GBF and DepEd’s collective vision of effective and quality education for incoming and in-service K to 12 Science and Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) teachers.
Both College and Master’s degree scholarships offer quality education from esteemed Centers of Excellence and/or Development in the country; fixed financial annual grants that can be used for educational expenses like tuition, books, supplies, living expenses, and conduct of research; and scholar development programs such as training and webinars, psychosocial support, and the like.

Other than these, GBF also offers the Master’s Research Grant and the Teacher Certificate Program for in-service teachers under the TeachSTEM Program.
The TeachSTEM Master’s Research Grant Program will provide financial aid to deserving STEM educators who are completing their master’s thesis or capstone project as final requirement for their master’s degree program taken in any of GBF’s partner universities. The Teacher Certificate Program, on the other hand, will support public K to 12 STEM educators who are non-education majors to complete a Teacher Certificate Program in any of GBF’s partner universities this year.
Through the TeachSTEM Scholarships Program, GBF envisions Filipino STEM teachers as champions in their own communities, enabling suitable learning environments for students who would later contribute to nation-building.
Application for all four TeachSTEM Programs is open until June 30, 2022. Incoming and in-service STEM teachers, apply now! You may also follow Gokongwei Brothers Foundation on Facebook for more updates on the program.
