Specifically, the grant is given to "promising Philippine journals towards the path to meet the minimum generally accepted standards for Scopus/WoS-indexability." 

The grant provides for a cash award of PHP 400,000.00 annually over a three-year period, "technical support by CHED in providing the digital platform Portal for Academic Knowledge (PAK), CHED endorsement for library subscription, and automatic nomination for the CHED Republica: Journal of the Year category."
