The UPLB Basic Research Program provides financial assistance for basic studies in the natural sciences and mathematics, social sciences, and humanities. The program also supports UPLB’s instruction, research, and extension function and is responsive to national development needs.

The Program provides up to Php 100K fund assistance for non-laboratory studies and up to Php 150k for laboratory studies.

The UPLB Basic Research Guidelines was revised in 2021 in recognition of the importance of basic research as the foundation of future research studies.

OVCRE releases a call for proposal each year for implementation during the next calendar year.
