The province of Negros Occidental is providing scholarships for 25 government employees, including teachers and other professionals, who will enroll in the Diploma in Environment and Green Technology Education (DEGTE).

The program is being offered as a collaboration between the provincial government and the Philippine Normal University (PNU) Visayas based in Cadiz City in northern Negros.

Karen Dinsay, head of the Negros Occidental Scholarship Program, said in an interview on Saturday afternoon the course is intended for environment work practitioners.

“This a new scholarship program, a pioneering offering under the administration of Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson. We aim to help enhance their knowledge of green technology. We encourage those qualified to enroll,” she added.

The 28-unit DEGTE program, which will be offered starting next semester, is designed to respond to the needs of professionals and practitioners for continuing professional development in Environment and Green Technology Education (EGTE) and aims to develop knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes towards environmental protection, conservation, and sustainability.

The course work covers the concepts, theories, and principles of Environmental Science, Human Systems and the Environment, and Education and Teaching.

In 2019, the PNU Visayas has been declared an EGTE Hub through the Board of Regents Resolution No. 2947.

Qualified to be DEGTE scholars are Filipino citizens and residents of Negros Occidental.

He or she must be a teacher or government employee working in the field of community engagement and public service in the province.

Lacson had earlier signed a memorandum of agreement with PNU Visayas executive director and provost Denmark Yonson, in the presence of Center for Environment and Green Technology Education director Meah Gonzaga, for the implementation of the DEGTE Scholarship Program in line with the observance of the 30th Provincial Environment Month this June.
