The DOST-SEI office has recently released the application and exam schedules for the DOST-SEI 2012 Scholarship Exam (note that this is the DOST Scholarship Exam that will be held this year for the incoming college freshmen of the 2012-2013 School Year). To quote the DOST-SEI’s reply to our email inquiry:
Please be informed that application form for the 2012 Undergraduate Scholarship Programs is now available at the Science Education Institute, 2/F Science Heritage Building, DOST Compound, Bicutan, Taguig City.
You may also download the form and the brochure from our website, www.sei.dost.gov.ph, once these are uploaded. The deadline of application will be on 21 October 2011 (Friday) and the conduct of the Scholarship Examination will be on 20 November 2011 (Sunday).
[Note: Emphasis is ours.]
So these are the important DOST Scholarship dates to remember:
Deadline of Application: October 21, 2011
DOST SEI Exam Schedule: November 20, 2011
At the time of writing, though, the downloadable application forms have not yet been uploaded to the DOST-SEI website, so be sure to check their website from time to time. As the email says, however, you can already get the application form from the DOST-SEI office in Bicutan. You should also check regularly with your local DOST Regional Offices; Provincial Science and Technology Centers (PSTC) or Offices of the Congressmen to see if the DOST scholarship application forms are already available in their office. In fact, in some regions – say, the Ilocos Region – application forms are already available in the DOST Regional Office.
