How to Request for DOST Scholarship Final Clearance?

Are you one of the recipient of Department of Science and Technology (DOST) scholarships? If you are, you know very well that you are obliged to render service in the country equivalent to the number of years you enjoyed the scholarship.

Now, here's how to request for final clearance once you've finished your service obligation.

Step 1 Get all the required documents.

  • Photocopy of diploma
  • Photocopy of your Transcript of Records
  • Certificate of Employment (with date and number of years employed)
  • Filled-up DOST-Tracer Form (Click the link to download a copy)
  • Request Letter addressed to the DOST-SEI Director
    • The head of the SEI changes, but as writing this article, it is Dr. Josette Biyo

Step 2 Go to the nearest DOST-SEI Regional Office and submit the above documents. Here's the link to the Regional Offices web pages

Step 3 Depending on which regional office you have submitted the request, you may have to wait for few weeks to get the final clearance.

  1. No need for Certificate of Employment?

  2. Hello po, magtatanong lang po sana kung ano ang mga requirement sa isang company na dapat pasukan ng isang DOST scholar para po credited ang COE later pag kumuha na ng final clearance. salamat po. Fresh grad po ako at balak ko po mangibambansa pagkatapos ng aking return service. Needed guidance. Thank you po. :)

  3. I've read another blog. Is it true that i can just email scanned copies of my COEs and letter of request to SEI and followup after a couple of days thru phone if the final clearance is already released? It's hassle to bring all these documents then return again for pickup of the final clearance. Thank you for the response.

  4. 1. Dapat ba 5years ka ng employed (based sa COEs), o basta 5years since grumaduate ka?
    2. Kailan ka magstart bumilang ng 5years? From date of graduation ba? Last date ng stipend? Date ng scholarship grant?

  5. Hello, nakuha ko na yung letters ko for NBI, DFA nad BI back in 2014. Ang prob ko, hindi ko pa nadadala sa 3 govt agencies :( valid pa din kaya yung clearance ko na yun kahit dated 2014? O kailangan ko ulet magprocess ng request?

    Thank you po.

    1. Im on the same boat. The best thing to do is to try.

  6. Hi. I saw another blog saying that all travel ban for dost scholars is already lifted. Is it true?

    1. i checked with Bureau of Immigration before flying. But NBI clearance will still be a "hit". So clearance from DOST still needed for that purpose.

  7. Awesome and interesting article. Great things you've always shared with us. Thanks. Just continue composing this kind of post.

  8. Yet while normal and understandable, this is also something that's addressable. (Not entirely fixable, of course, but at least addressable.) But facts aren't the way to do it -- simply getting better at announcing the who, what, where, and when of things won't really convey the flavor of this lively place. For that you need stories.

  9. My entire working career up until that point had only been the safe route with a large corporation. You know the life. The daily grind. The BS you put up with because you figure this is the ONLY way. I even went on to get a psychology degree because the jobs I had been looking at required it. When I finished my degree I found that the amount of education I had was once again not enough.

  10. Good day po! Im a DOST scholar pero hindi ko po natapos ang program. Wala na po akong stipend 4th year palang ako. Now, I have been employed for almost 10 years pero sa callcenter. Pero gusto ko pong ma clear sa DOST. Pwede po bang gamitin ang COE q sa BPO. BS Mathematics po ang course ko. Thanks po.

  11. Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. friv play , play minecraft games online , 2player 2020

  12. To those looking for updated experience of acquiring DOST Final Clearance, April 2022.
    I am DOST RA 7687 scholar from 2010-2015, just email, with some attachments such as valid id, COE(indicating the total years of service) and clearance request form (can be downloaded online), waited for just 2 weeks and CHARANN! meron ka ng Final Clearance.

    1. Hi! Did you pick up the clearance or did they send it to you via email? Thank you!

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real! So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos . Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store and I would like to share the steps I took in order to secure my account and get a new passbook. The steps outlined here is for a BPI savings account but generally the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and the most crucial step you need to immediately do is to contact your bank either through phone or personally reporting it to the branch where you opened the account. This will ensure that no funds will get out. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 89-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the lost. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for Replacement of Passbook This can be a simple replacement of the lost passbook but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes.
