The Department of Science and Technology- Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) has committed to provide scholarship grants to 200 students and S&T professionals affected by the 5-month battle of Marawi.

The “DOST-SEI Bangon Marawi Program on Science and Technology Human Resources Development,” will be the lead program in assisting in the rehabilitation efforts that will bring Marawi back on its feet.

The program includes scholarship grants to 225 selected undergraduate students in MSU Marawi City campus. The grantees, currently taking up Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) courses, will receive P10,000 per semester for school tuition fees; P6,000 monthly allowance; and P10,000 book allowance per year. This was in the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between DOST-SEI and Mindanao State University (MSU) System and DOST-SEI.

With regards to the S&T professionals, DOST-SEI will provide financial assistance for their pursuit of higher studies in science and engineering in DOST-accredited universities. Full-time graduate students are awarded 20 slots and will receive financial assistance that includes Php25,000 monthly allowances, Php10,000 book allowances annually and research grant assistance amounting to Php200,000 and also the tuition for their enrollment in their chosen universities.

This aims to strengthen the Science and Technology sector in Marawi city which was devastated by a 5-month siege last 2017.
