ERDT DOST SEI Masters And Doctoral Scholarships | Philippine Scholarship

The Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT) is a consortium of 8 member universities in the country that offer master’s and doctoral degrees in various engineering fields. This consortium is composed of Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU), Central Luzon State University (CLSU), De La Salle University (DLSU), Mapua University, Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT), University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD), University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) and the University of San Carlos.


The ERDT was created to implement high impact research agenda that is aligned with the National Science and Technology Plan (NSTP) and Medium Term Philippine Development Plan (MTPDP). One of the goals is to upgrade the qualifications of practicing engineers as well as upgrade the quality of engineering colleges and make engineering graduate education accessible.


The ERDT aims to attain a critical mass of graduates with Master’s and PhD degrees so it can develop a culture of research and development (R&D). The applicant must have a full time commitment to the scholarship and must not engage in any form of employment during the period when the scholarship is awarded.


Successful applicants must officially enroll as full time graduate student, not avail or enjoy other scholarships, and must be willing to render the required service obligation equivalent to the length of time that the scholar enjoyed the scholarship, which is one year of service for every year of scholarship or a fraction thereof.


The scholarship award covers 2 years for the master’s program and 3 years for the doctoral program. After 1 year of scholarship, the graduate or the grantee shall render service to the government or refund the scholarship grant with interest.
