Duterte Signs Bill Granting Free Tuition in SUCs

President Rodrigo Duterte has signed a bill to support full tuition grants at State Universities and Colleges (SUC).

Menardo Guevarra, deputy assistant secretary, announced at a press conference in Pasay City on Friday.

"Many people are delighted to announce last night on May 3 last night because they were waiting for President's action on a very important registered legislation passed in May last parliamentary session," said Guevarra.

This bill, passed by Congress in May, was passed to the Presidential Office for the President 's signature on July 5.

If not signed by the President, the law, which will be abolished by law on August 5, will subsidize the education of students in SUCs, local tertiary schools and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda)-accredited institutions.
