Grantees are chosen among Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries with an eligible high school graduate and have signified interest in pursuing higher education, and later on "high-value employment". The Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) is one of the leading SUCs who was tasked to implement the Students Grants-in-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (SGP-PA) starting AY 2012 - 2013. This project aims to assess the performance of the program by looking at the performance of the chosen grantees. These preliminary observations will also serve as a baseline as the program is to be expanded and continued for the next few years. The program is being rolled out (Expanded SGP-PA) from 4,000 beneficiaries to 36,400 beneficiaries for the Academic Year 2014-2015.
