National Health Scholarship Programme
Dear 2016 applicant for PhD (& Msc) FUNDING under the National Health Scholars Programme (NHSP)
This communication serves to confirm acknowledgement of a slight delay regarding the outcome to applicants who responded to the most recent NHSP call (in 2016) for scholarship funding.
Amongst other factors, the activity at SA universities during the latter part of 2016 involved some of the eminent persons who are part of the review process of the NHSP.
Nonetheless, the process has been accelerated by working throughout the December holiday season and we expect to inform all applicants of the outcome by end January 2017.
The SAMRC thanks the review team for the continued selfless giving of their time to conclude the process.
Our sincere apologies to applicants for the unavoidable delay which must be causing anxiety.
