by Rebecca C. Espera

Davao City (6 June) -- The Department of Science and Technology (DoST) has posted their scholarship program which will benefit those who took up courses or may want to take up fields of study related to Science and Technology (S&T) disciplines.

First of their four scholarship programs is the Junior Level Science Scholarship (JLSS). JLSS is intended to all regular 3rd year college students throughout the academic year 2009-2010 who are at present enrolled in state universities under any of the subsequent recognized priority S&T courses, namely: Agricultural Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemical Eng'g., Chemistry, Computer Eng'g., Physics and Statistics, among others. The deadline for the program application will be on June 26, 09.

There are also scholarships available for those professionals engaged in research, fresh graduates, and on-going MS/PhD students who took courses in Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Earth and Space Science, Environment, Fisheries and Marine Science, ICT, Materials Science and Engineering, Mathematics, Medical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Microelectronics, and Physics.

This program is called Accelerated Science and Technology Human Resource Development Program (ASTHRD), which is offered to University-based MS/PhD Program and Thesis/Dissertation Grant Support for R&D priority areas of DoST. Deadline for this is on August 31, 09.

Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT) Human Resource Development Program is the application available to professionals with a BS/MS degree in Engineering. Study placement for ERDT includes Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, Mindanao State University-IIT, University of the Philippines Diliman and Los Baņos, University of San Carlos. Deadline for ERDT application is on August 31, 09.

Lastly, the DoST-SEI Undergraduate Scholarship, which is a program for graduating high school students with high aptitude in science and technology and who would want to practice priority fields of study in basic sciences, engineering and other applied sciences and science teaching. This program has two scholarships offered: RA 7687 or the S&T scholarship Act of 1994, which is awarded to talented and deserving students coming starting low-income families.

The other one is the DoST-SEI Merit Scholarships; granted to students with high aptitude in science, mathematics and technology not considering the family's socio-economic status. The deadline of application is on September 30, 2009.

The implemented scholarship programs are outlinde by DoST to be able to help in the country's enhancement in international competitiveness and potential to innovate through different tactics in S&T and to step up the production of high-level human resources needed for S&T endeavors.

The fortunate scholars who can avail any of the scholarship programs of DoST will be given privileges including tuition fee, book allowance, transportation allowance, and a monthly living allowance.
