The Scholarships for Teacher Education Programs to Upgrade Teacher Quality in the Philippines (STEP UP) is a scholarship campaign by Philippine Business for Education (PBEd), funded by the Australian Government, under the Basic Education Sector Transformation (BEST) program.
The goal of the program is to produce 1,000 high quality teachers ready for public school employment by 2019. For the S.Y. 2017-2018, the program is open to young professionals, career shifters and graduates of any bachelor’s degree except for BS Education (preferably BS Math, Medical Sciences, Literature, Social Studies, and other related courses). The applicant must have at least a general weighted average of 85% or equivalent in college, and must not be older than 45 years old.
