Scholarships and Financial Aid

Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) is the first and only chartered and autonomous university funded by a city government. It was created by the Congress of the Philippines by virtue of Republic Act No. 4196 or “An Act Authorizing the City of Manila to Establish and Operate the University of City of Manila” on June 19, 1965.

And so, PLM partners with foundations and generous individuals to provide poor but deserving students the fighting chance that they deserve. Depending on the partners, scholars receive monthly stipends, book allowances, and even a year-end bonus.

Explore new things, and don’t be afraid to fail because it’s part of growing, that will help your mind to be mature enough to face this world’s reality.

Don’t waste your time, Apply now!

The scholarship providers evaluate and approve applications based on the following requirements:

  • The family’s annual income of Php 300,000.00 or less
  • General Weighted Average (GWA) of not less than 2.25
  • With no previous scholarship application nor a recipient of any scholarship grant

Who can become scholarship providers?

Organizations or individuals interested to provide scholarships to PLM students may contact the Office of Public Affairs (OPA) and enter into a Memorandum of Agreement subject to the Board of Regent’s approval.

Inquiries and letters of intent may be addressed to:

Dina C. Mendez 

OIC, Public Affairs 
Email: [email protected]

Once the partnership is approved, the OPA contacts the University Committee on Scholarship and Office of Student Development and Services (OSDS) as Committee Secretariat about the scholarship requirements and slots for dissemination to the colleges and Information and Communications Technology (ICTO) so that students who need the financial aid could apply.

The colleges receive applications from interested students. Then it submits the applications to the OSDS, which creates a shortlist using the scholarship providers’ criteria. This list is submitted to the Committee on Scholarship, which makes the final recommendation and submits it to the OPA. The OPA then coordinates the recommended scholars to the scholarship providers for their concurrence.
