Senator JV Ejercito on Friday said the free tuition law signed by President Duterte is an investment to further equip the country’s most precious resource — the human resource.

“As one of the principal authors of the Free Higher Education for All, I am very, very happy for the poor but deserving students studying in the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs),” he said.

“I would like to thank the President for signing this landmark legislation into law,” he said. Aside from tuition fees, the government will shoulder miscellaneous and all other mandatory fees.

With this law, students will enjoy free education in SUCs, local universities and colleges (LUCs) and vocational schools under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) starting the second semester of school year 2017-2018.

Scholarship grants will also be made available to students of both public and private college and universities. It provides a new and improved student loan program, where students can apply for financing for other education expenses.
