Each applicant may receive PHP 1,000 for those in elementary, PHP 2,000 for those in high school, PHP 3,000 for those in senior high school, and PHP 4,000 for those in college or vocational school.

Inaasahan po natin na malaking bagay po ito lalo’t apat na Sabado pa after nito yung atin pong gagawing pamamahagi ng educational assistance,” Lopez said. “Ang panawagan lang natin sa ating mga kababayan talagang hintayin na magkaroon ng text confirmation at doon, kung saan sila papupuntahin at kailan para maiwasan ang siksikan.

Moreover, Lopez said that the department is threshing out the guidelines “this week” on how to help those who do not have access to the internet or smartphone access.
