TES is a program under the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) which grants financial subsidy to poor but deserving college students. It was enacted in 2017 through Republic Act (RA) 10931 also known as the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act (UAQTEA).
Student grantees enrolled in State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) and Local Universities and Colleges (LUCs) will be given P40,000 per academic year. Meanwhile, those in private universities and colleges will be given P60,000 annually. The subsidy can be used for books, boarding fees, and other educational- related expenses.
