Policy Brief

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) provides for training and education programs for the benefit of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and their dependents. One of these training programs is the Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP). Since the program was first implemented in 2004, a total of 1,105 OWWA member beneficiaries have already completed their bachelor’s degrees in 2015.

However, there is a lack of evidence on the achievement of the program outcomes, particularly the contribution of EDSP to the career development of the scholars. In line with the government’s pursuit of institutionalizing a results-oriented budgeting system, the OWWA commissioned ILS to undertake a tracer study of EDSP graduates.
