This program is an academic recognition program – it awards graduating senior high school students who excel in Mathematics and Science. By honoring these students, the program hopes to inspire and encourage them to maximize their potentials for careers in these fields, to pursue higher levels of education, and to contribute to the growth of the country by helping meet the need for leaders trained in these fields.
Selection of award recipients is conducted by the member schools through an awards committee which will screen candidates based on academic performance, moral character and integrity.
Schools must register for inclusion in this program. Only those schools accredited by the Department of Education and have the license to operate as a senior high school can register.
Registered schools must send the Gawad Talino Report to MDFI to receive the medals and certificates.
