Last March 28, the UP DOST Scholars’ Association (UP DOST SA) held its 7th DOST Scholars’ Summit at the College of Science Auditorium, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City. With the theme “Scholars’ Eye View: Widening Career Dimensions”, the event was participated by almost 200 scholars from different universities. The scholars not only received insights from the speakers but freebies and certificates from the sponsors and organizers as well.
The DOST Scholars’ Summit, the premier DOST scholars' conference in Metro Manila and nearby provinces, aims to help and prepare the DOST Scholars, especially the juniors and seniors, for their career endeavors. This year, the scholars were invited to witness outstanding professionals from various fields as they deliver talks about their respective careers—academe, science and research, finance and business and industry. Other speakers were also invited to give job application tips, to talk about their company, and to inspire their fellow scholars.
The success of the event could not have been possible without the help of its sponsors, media partners, and partner organizations. Above all, the organizers would like to express their deepest gratitude to DOST-SEI which was supportive as ever and helped a lot to the cause of the event, and to MediLink which has been an invaluable partner to the UP DOST SA in organizing the DOST Scholars' Summit for several years.
