“This will allow many eligible graduate students to apply for the research grants easily through the online electronic application” he noted.
He emphasied that, the online electronic application would enables all eligible graduate students to sign-up using their login details whiles enabling them to complete their profile with adequate information.
He also emphasized that, the electronic application would support the electronic payments of the thesis and bursary grants of students through their respective bank accounts.
Kingsley Agyemang, the registrar of the Scholarship Secretariat also expressed delight for such innovation, indicating that the online portal would save the institution some time and strength required to vet and approve payments of bursaries.
