The PEAC invites researchers to submit proposals under the Research and Innovation for Success in Education (RISE). For 2017-2018, the priority research areas focus on the GASTPE Program and related research questions and topics articulated in DepEd's Basic Education Research Agenda (DepEd Order 39, s. 2016). Proposals that are of particular interest are policy studies that address, but are not limited to, the following research questions:
- How might GASTPE improve access to education in the Philippines across different vulnerable groups?
- How might the GASTPE mechanisms be improved to address the needs of targeted beneficiaries and at the same time consider the economic and institutional circumstances of private schools?
