WP-2015-04: Tracer Study of OWWA’s Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP)

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) provides training and education programs that benefit OFWs and their dependents. One such program is the Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP), which was implemented in 2004. From 2004 to 2013, a total of 380 beneficiaries graduated from this program. However, no convincing evidence of the results of the program, especially as regards its beneficiaries, is yet available. Thus, there exists a strong need to gather insights into how the program has contributed to the career development of its scholars so as to properly manage and direct the outcomes of future education and training programs. Hence, the OWWA commissioned the Institute for Labor Studies (ILS) to undertake a tracer study of the EDSP. Research results will support the policy and program development processes of the OWWA in line with the government’s pursuit to institutionalize a results-oriented budgeting system.
