DOST-SEI JLSS 2021 Online Application Guide

Are you an incoming third-year year college student and currently enrolled in one of the DOST-SEI priority S&T courses? And you want a scholarship to help you pursue your college education? If you belong to these people, then this post is for you! Please read on.

What is the DOST-SEI JLSS?

The JLSS stands for Junior Level Science Scholarships. It is a scholarship program of the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) for third-year or junior college students currently taking courses under the DOST-SEI list of fields of study. This program is implemented by the government to boost the number of scientists and engineers that will help in the knowledge creation and economic productivity of the country. The beneficiaries of this program are expected to teach STEM at the basic education level or work along with their fields of specialization in the country equivalent to the length of years in which they benefitted from the scholarship program.

Types of Scholarships

There are three types of scholarships under the JLSS program. Each has a different set of requirements and qualifications. To wit:

  1. R.A. 10612 – this program aims to provide opportunities to third-year students taking up Pure Science, Mathematics, and Engineering courses, to teach in secondary schools nationwide. Applicants must be natural-born Filipino citizens, have a general weighted average (GWA) of at least 83% or its equivalent, must have good moral character, and must be in good health. Moreover, the applicants must pass the JLSS examination conducted by DOST-SEI.
  2. R.A. 7687 – It is also known as the “Science and Technology Scholarship Act of 1994”. This is intended for poor but talented and deserving students who are taking courses in basic sciences, engineering, mathematics, and other applied science. Qualifiers for this program are natural-born Filipinos and belong to families in the lower socio-economic bracket. Applicants must have a GWA of at least 83% or its equivalent, have good moral character, and in good health. To qualify, an applicant must also be a certified resident of their municipality for at least four years. Just like with the R.A. 10612 program, they must also pass the JLSS Exam of DOST-SEI.
  3. Merit Scholarship – It is formerly known as the NSDB or NSTA Scholarship under R.A. 2067. The DOST-SEI JLSS Merit Scholarship is for junior college students with high aptitude in Science and Mathematics. Qualifiers under this program usually belong to families with high-income brackets and must pay a certain amount of scholarship exam fees. To qualify, applicants must be natural-born Filipino citizens with a GWA of at least 83% or its equivalent with good moral character and in good health. Just like with RA 10612 and RA 7687, applicants under this program must also pass the DOST-SEI JLSS Exam.
