The Center for Philippine Studies has engaged in some projects. In 2013-15, it implemented a curricular project to ingest peace education and peacebuilding, with a grant from the US Institute of Peace (USIP). The project has been successfully completed, in cooperation with three campuses of Mindanao State University, in the Philippines.

Currently, it is implementing a Group Projects Abroad (GPA) under the  US Department of Education-Fulbright Program to train 12 K-12 American teachers to undergo learning of basic Cebuano language in Cebu during the summer 2020.  This training will be hosted by the University of San Carlos, Cebu City.

However, the project’s implementation has been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which adversely affected the US and the Philippines as well. The GPA project will be implemented in 2020 for 5 weeks also in Cebu.
