The Civil Service Commission (CSC) and the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) renew an agreement about the scholarship program known as “Pamanang Lingkod-Bayan Iskolarsyip”.
CSC stated that the PLBI program seeks to honor and recognize murdered or deceased “kawani” who exhibited the qualities of a “bayani” while serving the public.
Through a MOA, the CSC-PASUC Pamanang Lingkod-Bayan Iskolarsyip was created in August 2008.
In case you don’t know, PASUC is an association of public tertiary school-level institutions in the Philippines which include 114 State Universities and Colleges under the Commission on Higher Education.
According to CSC, this scholarship, “Shall be given to the immediate family members of the civilian public official or employee who was killed in the line of duty or has died in the dedicated performance or pursuit of his/her official duties and responsibilities or functions as a civil servant.”
Additionally, “Immediate family members refer to the spouse, and legitimate and illegitimate children of the married deceased public officer or employee. If the marital status is single, members shall refer to a niece or nephew receiving support from the deceased public officer or employee.”
As part of the scholarship program, a grantee will be given priority admission to any PASUC-member state college or university of their choice and one free bachelor’s degree scholarship in accordance with Republic Act No. 10931, also known as the “Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act of 2017.”

This is provided that the grantee is eligible for admission and meets the school’s requirements. The scholarship incentive can be availed by up to two recipients.
The scholarship will cover the tuition and other school costs, with the exception of any baccalaureate programs that require fiduciary funds. One beneficiary will receive a tuition reduction for postgraduate studies.
For beneficiaries who are still minors, a joint CSC-PASUC Certificate stating that they will be eligible for the PLBI scholarship advantages once they reach the legal age to complete a baccalaureate program will be given to them.
Any civilian or non-uniformed worker who died in the line of duty or while carrying out their assigned duties may be nominated for the PLBI Program. This includes workers who had permanent, temporary, probationary, elective, contractual, casual, and co-terminus employment status. The program does not apply to government employees who are entitled for compensation and death benefits under current or prospective laws and regulations.
During the awarding, the Pondong Pamanang Lingkod Bayan, a one-time financial assistance of PHP 100,000, is given to the awardee’s family in addition to the scholarship coverage.
The Pamanang Parangal sa Lingkod Bayani, a tribute, in which the awardee is acknowledged during the flag raising ceremony of his or her agency and a Certificate of Recognition signed by the CSC Chairperson is also given to the bereaved family.
Within six (6) months of the date of death, heads of agencies or regional offices may submit nominations of qualifying deceased or killed workers to the CSC Regional and Field Offices. See CSC Resolution No. 2100266 or the PLBI Enhanced Implementation Guidelines (promulgated March 10, 2021) for information on the nomination process and requirements.
