As per section (4) subsection (4.3) of the NIHSS Doctoral Scholarship agreement states: ‘On having been awarded the degree, the Student must submit the following to the NIHSS, before 30 days elapse’:
STUDENT POST - AWARD PHASE
Upon receipt of both the Students and Supervisor Annual Progress Report, the reports are reviewed, and renewal is based on satisfactory progress and availability of funds.
Once the Student completes their APR and submits their online report, an automated link is sent to the supervisor, prompting the supervisor to complete his/her report.
There are two (2) reporting requirements for existing students. The Mid- Year Progress Report (MYPR) which is submitted Mid – Year; and the Annual Progress Report (APR) submitted at the end of each funding year. The purpose of the MYPR report is to track Student Progress. With regards to the APR, the Student and Supervisor are required to submit reports. It is solely the responsibility of the Student to also follow up with the supervisor for submission of their supervisor’s report.
Proof of payments are sent to NIHSS affiliated university administrators who in turn communicate the payment information and the university disbursement processes to the paid student.
