I suggest the committee to change the name of the program into Philippines-India Exchange Program, not ASEAN! bcz I can't see any details if participants from other ASEAN regions such as Indonesia for instance, would be eligible to apply for this!
Thank you

Hi Trang Vu and Rienta, as this is a Philippine government sponsored organization, this is intended for Filipino youth applicants. You should probably check your own government websites if they relay this kind of event in your own country.
