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.

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 to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are 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 most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the loss. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for a Replacement of the Passbook It can mean a simple replacement of the lost passbook, but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes. 3. Get an Affidav

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part 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 known 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 was 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 note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
