UP College of Education students are invited to become a Remitly Scholar.

Remitly’s online money transfer service, available at www.remitly.com, enables thousands of people to conveniently send money from the United States to the Philippines every month. Since educational support is among the most important reasons that our customers send money back home, Remitly created the Remitly Scholars program to give back to the Filipino community that we serve.

The Remitly Scholars provides direct monthly financial assistance of USD$80 per month over the course of 10 months to qualified students to enable them to pursue their educational and professional dreams.


The Remitly Scholars Program is open to any resident of Philippines who will be enrolled at a participating institution of higher education for 12 months or more following Program enrollment and who meets the following scholarship eligibility criteria:
