TABUK CITY, Kalinga – One hundred six examinees took the qualifying exams for scholarship under the sponsorship of the Department of Science and Technology simultaneously with those dependents of Overseas Filipino Workers under the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.

Ninety-eight DOST examinees while eight OFW dependents for OWWA took the qualifying tests at the St. Louis College of Bulanao this city. Fifty took the examination in the ograms sponsored by DOST under RA 7687 selecting two qualifiers for two scholarship slots per province and the merit category for passers with family income of not more than P156,000.00 per annum.

He said results will be released April next year. However, Berto advised examinees not to wait for the results but instead seek admission in college in order not to delay enrolment or disrupt entry to college in case of positive or negative results.

He said scholars under RA 7687 receive higher stipends than those under the merit program.

Under RA 7687, the DOST Science Education Institute will award Bachelor of Science degree scholarship to students to pursue priority fields of study in science, mathematics and engineering, Berto said.

He said DOST-SEI will also award scholarship in Bachelor of Science degree to students with high aptitude in science and mathematics who are willing to pursue fields of science and technology under the merit program.

Meanwhile, students passing the OWWA scholarship can choose any course in any school in the country. Last year, three passed the DOST test while four in the OWWA 2009 test.
