Cong. Bambi Emano calls for transparency in DOST scholarship distribution

The Politiko Seeks Clarity Regarding DOST Scholarship Program.

Congressman Bambi Emano has taken the initiative to seek clarification from officials at the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) regarding several aspects of their scholarship program. He has raised questions about the application process, eligibility criteria, and the allocation of slots for scholars across different regions.

Of particular concern to Congressman Emano is the explanation provided for the disproportionately low number of scholars in Region 10.

He finds it unacceptable that the lack of internet accessibility has been cited as a contributing factor to this disparity.

He views this explanation as lacking substance and believes it does not justify the unequal distribution of slots among regions.

Additionally, Congressman Emano has requested that the resource persons provide both his committee and office with a copy of the list of DOST scholars categorized by region, including information on the ratio of applicants to grantees.

His intention is to ensure that the allocation of slots for the Government Scholarship Program is carried out equitably among regions unless valid and justifiable reasons dictate otherwise.
