USeP among accredited HEIs to cater PAHRODF-ICSP scholars

The Australian government through thePhilippines Australia Human Resource and Organizational Development Facility (PAHRODF) recognized the In-Country Scholarship Program (ICSP) scholars on July 23, 2015 at Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City. Fifteen of these scholars graduated from the University of Southeastern Philippines.

                USeP is among the six accredited Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) chosen by PAHRODF. The ICSP was conceptualized to deliver substantial assistance to professionals, groups and organizations in conflict-affected areas in Mindanao. It is an avenue for Filipinos who are incapable to study in Australia for various reasons such as work or family demands, so they can pursue professional excellence with postgraduate scholarships at top Philippine universities. The ICSP complements the Australia Awards and reverberates its goals of developing key leaders and reformers to boost the development in the Philippines.
