The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) will release a total of P100 million to 10,000 kin of GSIS members to augment their college education expenses through the GSIS Educational Subsidy Program (GESP) for academic year (AY) 2021 to 2022.
Each college student will receive Php10,000 from GSIS.
“Malaking ginhawa ang hatid ng Php10,000 na educational subsidy para sa ating mga miyembrong may anak o legal dependents na nasa kolehiyo, lalo pa ngayon na nasa gitna tayo ng pandemya. Mula sa 15,770 qualified applicants, pumili tayo ng 10,000 grantees na pinakanangangailangang makatanggap ng educational assistance para sa pag-aaral ng kanilang kaanak,” said President and General Manager Rolando Ledesma Macasaet.
Out of nearly 17,300 received applications nationwide, the grantees for AY 2021-2022 were selected from different regions across the country, broken down as follows: 1,581 from NCR (15.81%); 1,994 from North Luzon (19.94%); 2,093 from South Luzon (20.93%); 2,078 from Visayas (20.78%); and 2,254 grantees from Mindanao (22.54%).
The grantees will receive the subsidy after submitting the requirements to GSIS. New grantees must submit the duly signed and notarized GESP agreement, the Information Sheet with two copies of the student’s latest 2×2 ID pictures, and a Land Bank of the Philippines account number.
These requirements must be submitted to the nearest GSIS office within 60 calendar days from the publication of the list of qualified students in the GSIS website or official social media account.

A student-grantee may shift course or transfer to any CHED-registered school provided that the course is completed within the duration of the original course.
Additionally, a written notice for the shift of course or transfer of school must be submitted to the Corporate Social Advocacies and Public Relations Facilities Department Manager, GSIS Pasay City.
The subsidy is non-transferable.
