DepEd Voucher

DepEd Voucher refers to a subsidy given by the State to qualified Grade 10 completers to enable them to enroll in a Non-DepEd SHS of their choice.

The subsidy is not given to the learner as cash; DepEd instead pays directly to the non-DepEd SHS where the learner enrolls.

Grade 10 Students who graduated from public high school and those who graduated in a private school with Education Service Contracting Subsidy (ESC) are automatically included in the program thus there is no need for them to apply.
