DOST Registry


Filipinos excel and can be among the best in the world given the right opportunities.  They compete and take on the challenges even outside the comforts of our motherland.  It is in the Filipino genealogy, it is within our bloodline, to continuously aspire to achieve greater heights amidst seemingly insurmountable difficulties.

In recognition of this great Filipino spirit as well as such fine qualities of being creative, brilliant, persevering, flexible and enterprising, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in cooperation with the Science and Technology Advisory Council in Silicon Valley (STAC SV) and the Philippine-American Academy of Science and Engineering (PAASE), have established this Registry of  Foreign-Based Filipino Scientists, Engineers, and Technology Entrepreneurs.

The Registry aims to document and correspondingly establish a dynamic listing of outstanding foreign-based Filipinos (both Filipino citizens or of Filipino descent) who had or have been excelling in the fields of sciences, engineering or technology-based enterprise development and commercialization.  They shall comprise the “New Filipino Illustrados” whom the Philippine Government looks up to for much needed assistance in accelerating technological innovation and concomitant economic transformation.
