The Grants-In-Aid Program of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-GIA) aims to harness the country’s scientific and technological capabilities by providing financial grants to S&T programs/projects to spur a sustainable economic growth for the country.

        Through the funding of relevant science and technology (S&T) undertakings, the GIA program is designed to contribute to productivity improvement and quality of life of Filipinos by generating and promoting appropriate technologies. It also aims to strengthen the participation of various S&T sectors particularly in research and development (R&D), promotion, technology transfer and utilization, human resources development, information dissemination, advocacy, and linkages.


                  Any Filipino public or private entity with proven competence may apply for the GIA support of DOST and its grants-giving units, provided that projects are for the benefit of Filipinos and based in the Philippines.
