The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) released a very important press statement announcing to the general public that all medical students enrolled in various State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) across the Philippines can now avail the free tuition program of the Duterte administration.


Based upon the joint memorandum circular released by CHED and DBM "Doctors of Medicine students in the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) can now avail and enjoy full tuition subsidy through the Cash Grants to Medical Students enrolled in State Universities and Colleges (CGMS-SUCs) program of the Duterte administration," stated by the memo.

The memo also stated that all qualified student-grantees shall be entitled to receive one hundred percent (100%) tuition subsidy on the actual tuition of their respective SUCs.

CHED Commissioner and spokesperson Prospero de Vera signed the memorandum circular and shared it on social media through his official Facebook account.
