The TESDA-CAR has a 2022 scholarship budget of PHP164,544,125, only 27 percent of which have been utilized.

The official added that aside from free education that covers the laboratory supplies, a scholar also gets insurance coverage for at least one year, a daily stipend of P160, an internet allowance, book allowance, and a tool kit that can be used to start up a livelihood activity.

Due to the pandemic, an allowance for personal protective equipment is also provided to a scholar.
