Manila (22 February) -- Members of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) once again get to help fulfill the scholastic dreams of a number of lucky youths through the 2010 GSIS Scholarship Program, wherein winning members get to select any incoming college freshman or current college student of their choice to be the beneficiary of the said scholarship.

All GSIS active members with updated premium payments can join the program. To join, members just need to fill up an application form available in all GSIS offices nationwide and also downloadable from the GSIS website (

Duly accomplished forms must then be submitted to any GSIS office for processing.

Winning members will be drawn through an electronic raffle. Two-hundred slots are available this year.

Under the program, scholars enjoy tuition and miscellaneous fees of P20,000 per semester and a monthly stipend of P2,000.

"The GSIS Scholarship Program is one of our premier Corporate Social Responsibility programs. With it, we can help a lot of our youths achieve their goals and live their dreams by providing them free tertiary education," said GSIS President and General Manager Winston F. Garcia.
