Going to college and getting an education has always been a top priority for women from the Philippines. They pride themselves on being well educated and statistics tend to back them up. Did you know that more women in the Philippines enroll in college than men? Of course, this increase in enrollment in Filipino women presents one problem. College is expensive and without the required amount of money you can find yourself in debt quite fast. Luckily, there have been multiple scholarships designed to help Filipino women. We have compiled those scholarships on this page in an easy to read manner so it is just a matter of clicking the link we provide you with and you will be taken right over to the application form.
