The DOST scholarship program is open to graduating students of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) strand and non–STEM students who belong to the upper top five percent of the graduating class who wish to pursue a college degree on Basic and Applied Sciences, Engineering, Science and Mathematics Teaching.

DOST undergraduate scholars will benefit from the following:
  • increased monthly stipend of P7,000 per month
  • P40,000 per year tuition and other school fees subsidy
  • P10,000 per year book allowance
  • one-time P1,000 uniform allowance

DOST-SEI scholars are required to render service in the country preferably along their fields of specialization after graduation for a period equivalent to the number of years they enjoyed the scholarship as a return service. SEI maintains its resolve that this strategy allows the country’s industries to have “the best minds” to do their services and products.
