USEP is among the six ac­cred­ited Higher Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tu­tions (HEIs) cho­sen by PAHRODF. The ICSP was con­cep­tu­al­ized to de­liver sub­stan­tial as­sis­tance to profes­sion­als, groups and or­ga­ni­za­tions in con­flict-af­fected ar­eas in Min­danao. It is an av­enue for Filipinos who are in­ca­pable to study in Aus­tralia for var­i­ous rea­sons such as work or fam­ily de­mands, so they can pur­sue pro­fes­sional ex­cel­lence with post­grad­u­ate schol­ar­ships at top Philip­pine uni­ver­si­ties. The ICSP com­ple­ments the Aus­tralia Awards and re­ver­ber­ates its goals of de­vel­op­ing key lead­ers and re­form­ers to boost the de­vel­op­ment in the Philip­pines.
