Application for SHS Voucher Program is NOW OPEN

Grade 10 completers from private Junior High Schools (JHSs) who are not ESC grantees can now apply for the SHS Voucher Program for School Year 2017-2018. Applications may be done manually or online and are free of charge. The requirements include:

  1. Voucher Application Form (for manual application)
  2. recent 2x2 colored ID photo
  3. proof of financial means, and
  4. certificate of financial assistance received (if applicable).

DepEd has issued DepEd Order 66, s. 2016 on the Detailed Guidelines on the Application for the SHS Voucher Program. Grade 10 completers from public JHSs, SUCs, and LUCs, and from private JHSs who are ESC grantees are automatically qualified to receive the voucher.

For more details on the applications and SHS Voucher Program, visit the Online Voucher Application Portal (OVAP).

Notable changes in the process for both manual and online applications:

  1. The LRN is now a REQUIRED information. Applications that do not have the LRN will not be processed.
  2. Only two supporting documents are required: photo and proof of financial capacity. Details on the proof of financial capacity are in the DO. The Certification on the Financial Assistance received is required only when it is applicable.
  3. Online applicants NEED NOT submit the documents to our office. Only manual applicants.
