Corporate Scholarships for College Students

Like Katie Scarlett on Facebook!

Last year when my cousin was preparing to enter college, I compiled a list of scholarship programs in the Philippines to help pay for her fees and other expenses and to make her resumé attractive to future employers. When she got into the University of the Philippines where they don’t have to pay any fees, I totally forgot about it until the other week.


I’m sharing this list of corporate scholarship programs in case you or anybody you know needs help paying for college. This post is solely for scholarship programs sponsored by private companies and rich people foundations. 


For more scholarship ideas, read the following posts:



I keep these posts evergreen post, meaning I will keep them constantly updated. If you know other programs that are not on the list OR if you have any experience about the application process, please feel free to write in the comments or send me a message through my contact page. Let’s help others who may benefit from the information.


I know that there are smart, hardworking, and dedicated people out there who do not have the means to go to college but are willing to put in the hard work to get an education. I was only able to attend one of the country’s top universities because of a scholarship. I personally experienced the transformative power of education and I certainly wouldn’t be as awesome as I am now if I didn’t have a scholarship in college. That’s because I wouldn’t have been able to attend at all.


Anyway, enough about me. I hope this list can help anybody out there get an education and change their lives for the better the way I and many others did.

  1. Hi Katie,
    this is a great site, and obviously it was tedious to collect all this data. I am a chemist at the end of his professional life, and I met a young student of marine biology, who started to follow me on Facebook. His family just gave up help during his first year, and I am now helping out. But this will not suffice, and he should find routes in the Philippines, so I am looking for a way to get him organized to receive a grant or stipend.
    You mentioned, that there is also a list of official sources. The ones in your current website are private organization. Could you give me the official ones as well? This would be a great help, and I would then contact these organizations together with Lloyd.
    Any more advice would this be highly appreciated.
    Kind regards

  2. Hi Katie, I’m curious if you’d have a list of scholarships for grad/masters within the Philippines? I’ve been looking for some time now but I often find for either college or for programs abroad. Foreign opportunities are exciting too but I’m more keen to enroll into Archaeology in UP Diliman. Thank you! 🙂

  3. I am applying my daughter for CHED scholarship, but disappointingly, we fund out that her course is not one in any of the courses, so i really need this for my references…thank you lots..would it be ok to email these scholarship foundations and tell them about my daughter’s scholarship..she will be in college this SY 2020-2021

  4. Thank you so much for putting all these information together. Really helpful for my Gr 12 daughter who will be in college next year. God bless

  5. Hi, Ms. Katie! I am an incoming grade 12 student this year and as early as now I am searching for different scholarships. My GPA for the second sem of this school year was 90.50% but I don’t belong to the top 10 of our batch. Since that’s the common requirement with every scholarships I browsed in. I am planning to take BSHRM in college and I am really in need for a scholarship to help me get through college. Please help me and suggest some scholarships that I can apply with. Thank you so much in advance Ms. Katie! I hope you will notice and help me with this, I would be very grateful if you do. God bless you po and more power.

    1. Kimberly,

      Good job on getting high grades.

      If you don’t qualify for the above scholarships, I suggest you think of other scholarship options, for example, work-study scholarships, athletic or artistic scholarships, or even scholarships from your local government unit or private scholarships from your local rich people in your area.

      Work-study and athletic scholarships are available in many private universities.

      Good luck!

  6. Hi Ms.Katie! I’m an upcoming secon year architecture student in Technological Institute of the Philippines. Your site is really helping me get an idea of where to get a scholarship. I pray that I could have a chance to get a scholarship, so that I can continue to study without putting much weight in the financial status of my family right now.

    Do Boysen company still accepting applicants in the season? This helps me a lot.Thank you Ms.Katie! Godbless!

    1. Lovi,

      I’m not sure if they accept applications outside of their regular seasons but there’s nothing wrong in asking them directly. Actually, it may benefit you to call them yourself because in general, people like to help students who want to get scholarships and better themselves.

      Good luck!

  7. Hi, Ms. Katie! It’s sad to see that there’s not a lot of scholarship for nurses. I am an upcoming 1st year nursing student in OLFU and I badly need a scholarship.

  8. Hi Ms. Katie! I’m looking for possible scholarship offers for those studnets who are currently enrolled in their last yr in SHS. Sadly, the lists above are mostly for those who are already enrolled in a univ. Can you help me? Thank you.

  9. Hello, if a learner is a son of a public school teacher, having a salary of 300k to 450k per annum, is there any scholarship grant that will be offered for him since he has good class standing .


    1. To be honest, I don’t know the answer to your question. I would encourage you to reach out to the scholarship committee or secretariat to inquire. There’s no harm in asking and you won’t know until you ask, right? Good luck!
