LOOK: List of Senators who pushes free education for all college students in SUC’s
Because the government allocated additional funds to shoulder the tuition fee of all the State Universities and Colleges students, the topic about the free higher educated became alive again.
The free tuition fee for all students may not become permanent until it’s not yet enacted as a law, that’s why these Senators were working hard to make it forever so the students would not worry until their studies ended.
These are the list of Senators who were pushing Free Higher Education for all.
- Senator Kiko Pangilinan – He filed the Tuition Free Higher Education Act of 2016 on August 1 is an act providing full tuition subsidy for students enrolled in state universities and colleges (SUC).

Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte would give free tuition to all SUC’s and it’s expected that this would be implemented until the end of his term, that’s why the free higher education for all SUC’s students must become a law as soon as possible.[source]
