This year’s pen-and-paper qualifying examination was conducted in 241 testing centers nationwide last March 18 to 19, 2023. This marked the resumption of the face-to-face exam after three years of pause caused by the pandemic. During that period, the Institute identified the qualifiers through data analytics.

Out of the total number of passers, 5,561 qualified as scholars under the RA 7687 Scholarship Program, which is the scholarships for academically talented students of economically disadvantaged families. Meanwhile, 4,215 qualified under the DOST-SEI Merit Scholarship Program.

In addition, 1,224 more potential qualifiers—whose names do not appear in the published list— are also under consideration, pending revalidation of some requirements.


The qualifiers will receive their Notice of Award, while the potential qualifiers will receive advice on the requirements they must resubmit. After which, all the qualifiers, with their parents/legal guardians, are invited to attend the orientation on S&T Scholarship Policies and Procedures.


Qualifiers who will avail of the scholarship will enjoy benefits for the duration of their S&T degree program, which include a monthly stipend of ₱7,000, tuition fee subsidy of up to ₱40,000 per academic year for those who will enroll in private universities and colleges, learning materials and/or connectivity allowance, MS/PE clothing allowance (one-time only), one economy-class roundtrip fare per year for those studying outside of their home province, outright thesis allowance, graduation allowance, and group accident insurance.

The qualifiers must pursue a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree program in any of the priority fields of study at a state university or college or any private higher education institution recognized by the Commission on Higher Education as a Center of Excellence or Center of Development or with FAAP Level III accreditation for the BS program that they intend to enroll in. The list of priority S&T programs is posted on the SEI website.


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.


In the 2022 DOST S&T Undergraduate Scholarship Program, the agency named 10,487 qualifiers.

In the 2021 S&T Undergraduate Scholarship Program, DOST-SEI named 8,067 qualifiers. Announcement of results took some time and was released in August last year due to "new selection scheme."

In the 2020 DOST scholarship exams, a total of 9,788 out of 102,526 (9.55%) examinees clinched their slots. Results were announced in five (5) months after the exam.

In the 2019 S&T Undergraduate Scholarship Program, DOST-SEI named 9,852 out of 73,712 (13.37%) who passed the tests. This was a record-breaking increase from previous exam, which was up by 10%. Results were released in more than five (5) months after the exam.
