Sectoral Engagements

SECTORAL ENGAGEMENT GRANTS are focused on complementing knowledge with practice and application. The grants open up avenues for knowledge generated in HEIs to be used in boosting public service and community engagement efforts. They aim to solve local problems in partner sectors such as government, industry, and civil society.


  • Industry Engagements seek to address job-skills mismatch of college graduates by immersing faculty in industry activities, translating to industry-relevant instruction and curriculum.
  • Civil Society Engagements support the academe in responding effectively to social and economic needs of communities.
  • Government Engagements allow faculty to participate in governance and the development agenda of the nation.
