TAGBILARAN CITY, August 1, (PIA) –Grade six pupils who intend to hitch into the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) scholarship have only until August 15, to fill in the applications and get into a specialized science, technology and mathematics curriculum school. 

The scholarship entails free matriculation fees, uniform allowances, monthly allowances, textbook allowances and reimbursements for two-way transport for the student passer to the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) complex in Argao, informed Vina Antopina. 

Antopina, who sits as the Assistant Provincial Science and Technology Director of the local DOST here said the scholarship is for those kids with high inclination for science, technology and mathematics, belonging to the top 10 of the class or one with a general average of 85 in his science and math subjects. 
At the Kapihan sa PIA appropriated for the Science and Technology Week Celebration in July, Antopina highlighted the need to put up more Boholano think-tanks, especially as to the critical role of the sector in running the economic engines to development. 

For high school entrants who pass the DOST scholarship and entrance tests, the student would have to stay in the PSHS dormitory within the school complex managed, not the Department of Education or the Commission for Higher Education, but the DOST’ Science Education Institute. 

This assures that the curriculum in the school is suited to the need of training the kids into a more comprehensive college training in science and technology, she hinted. 

Other than high schools, the DOST also accepts college scholarship applicants who would be enrolling in science and technology related courses. 

Deadline for college scholarship applications for next year is August 22, she bared. 

Of the 140 DOST scholars as of last year, 109 of them are in Bohol, enrolled at the Bohol Island State University, the only DOST accredited learning institution which can cater to the government training need in the island. 

The DOST moreover, accepts tertiary sholarships for doctorate and masteral courses in science and technology. Interested applicants are advised to visit the DOST, in its new office located at the CPG Park, Tagbilaran City. 

Scholarship application forms are available at high school principals offices all over Bohol, or are d
