The Department of Science and Technology has extended the application for scholarship until October 9, 2009. The scholarship is open to high school students with high aptitude in science and technology who plan to pursue priority fields in basic and applied sciences, engineering and science teaching.
There are 2 scholarship programs under which you (or someone you know) may qualify — the RA 7687 for deserving students from poor families and the DOST-SEI Merit Scholarship for qualified students regardless of the family’s economic status.
Scholars will be covered for the following education-related expenses: tuition fees (not to exceed P6,000 per semester), monthly stipend, book allowance, uniform allowance and insurance.
On a more personal note, this piece of news comes special to us, as Hubby and I have both been scholars of DOST while in college.
