USAID/Philippines, through STRIDE, has awarded scholarships to 39 bright Filipino academicians to pursue either a Professional Science Master’s or a graduate-level research in the U.S. in various fields of science, technology, and innovation.
The Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology (GraSST) is a merit-based, open, competitive national scholarship program that gives Filipinos the opportunity to study or do research at the graduate level in a U.S. university. USAID awarded the scholarships to talented individuals who were able to demonstrate potential as future leaders and decision-makers in the STI field, and to contribute towards an innovation-led economic development.
**USAID is no longer awarding scholarships under STRIDE.
