As the winner of an Open Scholarship in 2014, I am honestly concerned about the level of disrespect towards national scholars and guarantors lately.
Stipends are due to be paid quarterly in advance for the following three months. Payment is usually made at the beginning of March, June, September and December. At the time of writing this, many national scholarship winners, including myself, have not received their quarterly stipends, due at the beginning of September 2017. In addition, another stipend payment for the beginning of December which is also now due has not been received.
