How to apply for a Fisheries Scholarship Program


1. Program Background

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) through the Fisheries Scholarship Program (FSP), is granting full college scholarship to qualified high school graduates taking up Bachelor of Science in Fisheries (BSF). In the past, the FSP allowed other allied courses in fisheries; however, in 2010, it was agreed during the National FSP Coordinators Conference to focus the scholarship program on BS Fisheries consistent with the initiatives of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) towards the professionalization of Fisheries discipline.

In cases of new nomenclature of fisheries courses, proper details of course description must be provided to the FSP-Management and Coordination Unit (FSP-MCU) prior to the following school year, to give ample time to the MCU to discuss with proper and concerned authorities.

The program has two (2) components: the FSP Fisheries Industry Leader Grant (FILG) for high school graduates who belong to the Top 10 of their graduating class and, the Fisherfolk Children Educational Grant (FCEG) for high school graduates whose parents are Mangingisdang Juan or are registered in the Juan Magsasaka Registration System.
