5. Iskolar ng Bayan, Iskolar Para sa Bayan
One of the perks pf getting into UP is your being called an Iskolar. With this name comes the privilege of studying in the country’s most prestigious school without paying for a very high tuition fee. Of course, being an Iskolar also means that you should not only work hard for yourself, but to get ready to serve the Filipino people in the future.

Every Iskolar ng Bayan is unique. UP students come from all walks of life so there are no labels. We do not discriminate each other, and we work together. We try to avoid conflicts among ourselves as much as possible. UP also doesn’t support any religious group, as UP believes in you no matter what your faith is.
3. Filipino Pride
