  17. Also, does PhilDev Foundation accredit or honor DUAL SCHOLARSHIPS? In case I’m a ‘grante’ of superfund scholarship, would it be ok or legal if I’m also a government scholar particularly a grante of DOST-SEI scholarship?

  18. Greetings!

    I’m currently an enrolled freshman student of Mapua(MIT)-Intramuros with BSECE as my program. The MIT’s CSFA recommended me to apply for your superfund scholarship and so did I. I completed all the requirements and submitted it to CSFA. Last time I checked, they said they’ve already forwarded all the documents to you. Now may I know when are u POSTING the list of qualifiers for such?

  23. Hi, Melogene!

    Thanks for visiting the site!

    The Superfund Guidelines stated that other universities may be considered on a case-to-case basis, so there’s a possibility that she can become one of the grantees of the scholarship program.

You can find their e-mail address on the contact information listed above.

    As for the application form, the partner universities will be doing the first level screening process so you can probably obtain the form from their respective Admissions Offices.
