Support Groups

To assist you and other scholars in your scholarship needs and monitor your academic performance, there are support groups in your college/university from whom you can request assistance.


    a. In schools where there are more than fifty (50) scholars enrolled, a University Core Group or University-based Coordinator has been organized to guide and assist you.

    b. You must report to the UCG/UC and establish rapport with them/him/her.

    c. See the UCG/UC should you need guidance on matters concerning your scholarship: financial assistance or academic.

    For NCR scholars, please refer to the list of S&T University Coordinators.


    Some universities/colleges have instituted learning resource centers. These centers aim to provide instructional and support services to students.

    For example, UP Diliman, 2 LRCs: DLRC 1 is located at the 3/F National Engineering Center (NEC) while DLRC 2 is at the Kamia Residence Hall. In both centers, you can have access to a wide range of educational CD-ROMs, computer facilities, sample exams, tutorial sessions, and learning modules in science, mathematics and engineering.

    The UP (Diliman) Core Group holds office at the latter center.
