A successful applicant is entitled to a maximum of P1,500,000.00 to cover pre-travel expenses, living allowance, one roundtrip economy airfare, travel and health insurance, and other school fees required by the host university

Release of Funds

The ERDT Program shall disburse the entitlements of the Post-Doctoral Grantee based on the approved schedule of release of funds:

2. The subsequent monthly stipend of the scholar shall be released to the scholar as a check to be claimed at the cashier’s office of the home ERDT Consortium University. The remaining stipend and other allowances indicated in the approved line item budget will be released based on the approved schedule of release of funds.

The scholar must execute a special power of attorney to authorize a trusted person (e.g., parent, spouse, relative) in claiming the check.
