The Department of Education now offers P500,000 research grant to its teachers and non-teaching staff who will submit proposals in line with the theme “Supporting and Assessing Learning Continuity” and “Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education (MTB MLE) Materials and Development.”

This research grant is sponsored by DepEd’s Basic Education Research Fund (BERF).

DepEd invites all qualified employees to submit research proposals for possible funding under the BERF for Fiscal Year 2021.

The initiative “aims to further support and improve the policies, programs, and activities relevant to the implementation of the Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan (BE-LCP),” DepEd said.

The following are the qualifications to the research grant:

  • Regular/permanent teaching or non-teaching DepEd personnel;
  • Proponents who have no pending administrative case;
  • Proponents who have not yet availed of the grant for the given year; and
  • Maximum of three research team members for group proposals.

DepEd said “a maximum grant amount of up to P500,000″ awaits the qualified grantees.

DepEd said its Planning Service-Policy Research and Development Division (PS-PRDD) will be accepting national-level applications for prospective BERF support until August 29, 2021.
