The public was cautioned on Wednesday by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) against believing unauthorized sources that distort CHED scholarships.

The CHED claimed in a Facebook post that these unauthorized accounts are growing and purportedly requesting applicants’ private information.

It stated, “It has come to our knowledge that there are more unauthorized CHED online accounts, notably for scholarship applications.

These bogus CHED pages, which provide links and purported eligibility requirements for scholarships, may be found on websites and on Facebook. The CHED emphasized that there are just three of its official social media accounts.

The statement said, “PhCHED.gov (on Facebook), @PhCHED (on Twitter), and ched.gov.ph (website) is the Commission on Higher Education’s official handle names.

The higher education commission further emphasized that it does not allow applicants for scholarships to submit their applications virtually, but rather directly cooperate with the CHED office.

“CHED will never handle applications through social media or ask for your personal information there. Any inquiries regarding CHED scholarship programs must go through the relevant office, it advised.

Currently, CHED’s official Facebook page has 666,000 followers and its official Twitter account has 906,000 followers.
