List of CHED K to 12 Transition Program Grants

Grants for Displaced HEI Personnel
CHED is offering grants to HEI personnel displaced due to the K to 12 Transition. Both teaching and non-teaching staff can apply for the available grants to advance content knowledge, promote knowledge production, and build capability through scholarships, research work and engagements with partners in various sectors.

Aligned with the CHED mandate to promote and protect the rights, interests and welfare of teaching and non-teaching personnel, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Education (DepEd), and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) extend various development opportunities for employment, livelihood, and entrepreneurship to displaced HEI personnel.

Professional Advancement and Postdoctoral Study Grants
Are aimed at funding higher education faculty and staff who aim to further their specialization by undertaking a broad range of learning and research activities.  This is anchored in the need for faculty and staff to attain expertise and mastery of skills motivated not just by the demands of their profession but by a dedication to excellence in their areas of strength and interest.

There are three (3) types of grants under Professional Advancement and one (1) under Postdoctoral Studies that faculty and staff can apply for depending on need and eligibility.

Professional Advancement. Qualified faculty and staff may build expertise in their fields of specialization by undertaking non-degree professional advancement courses, under any of the following categories:

Graduate Certificate/Diploma Programs. HEI faculty and staff may take up certificate/diploma courses at the graduate level to deepen their expertise in a specialized area. Said programs must be offered by reputable institutions in the Philippines or abroad. Further, ladderized programs that lead toward the attainment of a graduate degree are also allowed.

Leadership Development Programs. HEI faculty and staff who are currently holding or preparing for leadership positions in their respective institutions may pursue leadership development programs offered by reputable business, professional or higher education institutions in the Philippines and abroad. This may include executive education programs, executive development programs, and fellowships in leadership, among others.

Accreditation of Learning earned through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). HEI faculty and staff who engage in and successfully complete massive open online courses (MOOCs) offered by reputable local and foreign institutions and within the period of effectivity of this Memorandum Order may receive a grant to have their learning assessed, recognized, validated or certified.

Sectoral Engagement Grants
The Sectoral Engagement Grants provide opportunities for college faculty and non-teaching staff with lesser teaching and work-loads to conduct immersion work with CHED-approved partners nationwide. Through the program, they are given incentives to engage in industry immersion, commissioned research, and extension activities which would enable them to complement their theoretical expertise with field experience.

Dare to Research Grant
The DARE TO (Discovery-Applied Research and Extension for Trans/Inter-disciplinary Opportunities) Research Grant is a competitive enabler seed grant amounting to a maximum Fifteen Million Pesos (Php15M) for two (2) years per proposal. It aims to stimulate strong collaborative research and innovation ventures and sustainable partnerships for extension activities during the K to 12 transition. These research grants give faculty and staff who were either deloaded or displaced during the K to 12 Transition a chance to participate and contribute in the work of research.

Institutional Development and Innovation Grants
The Institutional Development and Innovation Grants (IDIG) are awarded to higher education institutions (HEIs) to fund initiatives that strengthen their qualifications and capacity to respond and remain relevant to local, regional, national, and global priorities. This is part of the CHED K to 12 Transition Program, which aims to utilize the period of transition to the K to 12 basic education curriculum to similarly upgrade Philippine higher education.
