At BPI, through BPI Foundation (BPIF), we recognize the great contributions of our medical front liners in the fight against COVID-19. To honor their heroic efforts, BPIF offers PAGPUPUGAY, a scholarship program to support the next of kin of the medical front liners who passed away or were infected by the coronavirus.
Since the program's inception in 2020, BPIF has been able to provide educational assistance to fifteen (15) collegiate students, with scholarships being reviewed for renewal on an annual basis. For the Academic Year 2022 – 2023, BPIF will open applications for eight (8) new students.
Each scholar will receive a scholarship grant of up to Php 100,000.00 every academic year to help pay tuition and other incidental expenses given directly to BPIF's partner institution. The financial aid shall only pay school expenses for the ordinary school year or term and shall not, under any circumstances, reimburse school fees originating from or connected to the summer term, unless the summer term is required by the course curriculum. For scholars from state universities and colleges, the financial assistance will cover monthly living subsidy and learning assistance allowance.
If the deceased is married, priority beneficiaries will be the children. If single, beneficiaries can be next of kin up to 3rd degree of consanguinity.
Only the applications with complete requirements will be processed.
Scanned copies of application form and other supporting documents may be submitted. Hard copies will be required once applicants are selected for the scholarship.
Interested and qualified applicants are encouraged to contact and email their colleges/universities for more information or submission of applications:
