To help iskolar ng bayan through “the new normal” by providing for their remote learning needs, the UP Open University (UPOU) launched its own UPOU-Kaagapay+ program on September 1, in consonance with the UP System’s Kaagapay sa Pag-aaral ng mga Iskolar ng Bayan Fundraising and Resource Generation Campaign (Kaagapay UP).

For many UP students, finding a source and sense of support in these difficult times is a necessity, especially when it comes to the technology and resources needed to keep up with the “next normal” of remote and blended learning. To support its Iskolar ng Bayan, UP launched the Kaagapay sa Pagaaral ng mga Iskolar ng Bayan or #KaagapayUP project, with the aim of helping UP’s financially challenged students acquire the resources to engage in the remote and blended learning solutions instituted by the University in response to COVID-19.
