The Department of Science and Technology Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) is still accepting applications from incoming junior college students or  3rd-year college students for the Junior Level Science Scholarship (JLSS) program until July 31, 2022.

The JLSS program aims to support third year college students enrolled in priority Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) courses from identified academic institutions. It has three component programs, namely: the Merit Scholarship for students with high aptitude in STEM; the R.A. 7687 or the "S&T Scholarship Act of 1994" for socioeconomically challenged students; and the R.A. No. 10612 or the "Fast-Tracked S&T Scholarship Act of 2013", a program aimed to accelerate the production of Science and Mathematics teachers in secondary schools.

The JLSS is part of DOST's goal of increasing the number of scientists and engineers to help boost knowledge creation and economic productivity in the country and improve the quality of education by creating a pool of scholar-graduates who can competently teach STEM in secondary education.

Successful applicants will receive a tuition fee subsidy worth 40,000 pesos per year, 10,000 pesos for learning materials or connectivity allowance, premium health insurance, monthly living allowances amounting to 7,000 pesos per month, thesis allowance worth P10,000 and a graduation clothing allowance. Students studying outside of their home province can also avail of an economy roundtrip fare per academic year. 

Regular second-year college students with an average of at least 83 percent with no failing mark in the first two years in college enrolled in priority S&T courses are encouraged to apply.
