PhD Sandwich Program

The Sandwich Program is a fellowship that is offered to ERDT local PhD scholars to perform their researches in a university or research institution abroad for a maximum of one year. Aside from finding an available laboratory for the chosen research topic, a scholar will also be able to gain broader approach and technical knowledge and experience in inter-cultural exchange. The scholar applies to the Sandwich Program and the application is deliberated by the Fellowship Selection and Screening Committee. The awarded PhD scholars will be able to finish their dissertation, contribute to technical knowledge, and transfer the technology/techniques that they learned from the PhD Sandwich program.

Table 5 shows the yearly distribution of slots and the actual number of scholars who availed the program. Since the ERDT program started, there are already 19 scholars who were given opportunities to conduct their research abroad, and 14 scholars already returned. Among those who returned, 10 scholars already graduated, 4 scholars who recently came back from abroad are in their final dissertation stage, and 5 scholars are still abroad conducting their research. The list of these 19 scholars are listed in the appendix. The number of applicants for the program increased in 2010 because of the increase in number of senior or graduating PhD students who need to find available facilities for their specialized researches and dissertations.  To further increase the number of PhD graduates,  ERDT has increased the number of slots to 18 scholars with budget of PhP 22,000,000 and is now open to other members of the Consortium in this Program Cycle 5 (January 1, 2013-December 31, 2013).
