The Public Service Writing Fellowship is one of the regular programs of the Padayon Public Service Office that fulfills part of the public service mandate of the University of the Philippines to lead and disseminate research on the best practices and models of public service engagement. With an interdisciplinary and scholarly thrust, the Fellowship serves as the institutional support system that encourages and incentivizes the scholarship of public service that will make the University’s initiatives sustainable for the beneficiaries, institutional partners, and other stakeholders.
On the third installment of the Public Service Writing Fellowship, nine (9) Public Service Fellows have been selected from the pool of more than twenty (20) applications of faculty members, administrative staff, and research, extension, and professional staff (REPS) all over the UP System.
