Support PhilDev!

Our Mission:

At the Philippine Development Foundation (PhilDev), we are working to eradicate poverty through education, innovation and entrepreneurship. Here's how: 

  • Strengthen the education and training programs for young Filipinos in science and technology. Produce a higher ratio of qualified science and engineering experts and practitioners in the Philippines
  • Foster innovation by driving science and technology research toward the development of globally-competitive products and businesses.
  • Build an entrepreneurial ecosystem—from mentorship and networking to legal and financial support infrastructures—in the Philippines to start a movement that will lead to long-term economic growth. 

This scholarship is a second chance. I had to leave school for a year because I couldn’t afford it. This scholarship came and gave me hope to continue my dream.
— Ronald Reveche, PhilDev-Shell Chemical Engineering Scholar at UST

My father was a farmer. I am an engineer.

There are countless kids who just need a chance like I did. I am not so special. But I am determined.
— Dado Banatao, founder of PhilDev
