248 pass as DOST scholars for 2019
by DOST release

Two hundred forty-eight students from the Cordillera are among the 9,852 qualifiers in the Department of Science and Technology Science Education Institute 2019 Undergraduate Science and Technology Scholarship program.

The region ranked sixth nationwide with an overall mean of 87.59 percent, while the national overall mean is 88.58 percent.

The DOST declared the new batch of qualifiers as hitting a new record “since this year’s qualifiers breached the 8,994 mark of last year’s passers,” translating to a 10 percent increase.

The scholarship program has two types of scholarships, the Republic Act 7687 or the Science and Technology Scholarship Act of 1994, which provides scholarship to talented and deserving students whose families’ socio-economic status do not exceed the set cut-off values of certain indicators; and the Merit Scholarship, which is awarded to students with high aptitude in science and math.

In the region, 168 students qualified under the RA 7687 while 80 students qualified under the Merit Scholarship program. 

DOST-SEI released the results of the 2019 Undergraduate S&T Scholarship Examination last March 31. The exam was simultaneously held on Oct. 21, 2018 in 290 test centers nationwide.

These new S&T scholars will be given a stipend of P7,000 per month across all disciplines. They are also entitled to tuition subsidy, book allowance, MS/PE clothing allowance, one economy-class roundtrip fare per year for those studying outside their home region, and group accident insurance.

The application for the 2019 Junior Level Science Scholarships (JLSS) of the DOST is ongoing until April 26. Examination is on June 2.

Application forms may be secured at the DOST-CAR Scholarship Unit, BSU Compound. Km. 6, La Trinidad, Benguet or downloaded from
