Dean Allan de Guzman, PhD, of the College of Education was recently invited by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as one of the technical experts to evaluate proposals for the RDE Grants-in-Aid. The Research Grant-in-Aid is intended to enhance the support environment for research in higher education by stimulating research among the developing Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). This grant is afforded to research proposals submitted by public and private HEIs, subject to CHED approval.
