Dear Project Managers and Scholarship Students,

The Law Numbered 6676 on the Amendment to the Law on Supporting Research and Development Activities and Other Laws was published in Official Gazette No 29636 on February 26, 2016. Scholarship students involved in the projects supported by state institutions were included in the scope of SSI in compliance with the law.

Pursuant to the notice dated 18.03.2016 and spread around the university scholarship students involved in the projects supported by state institutions (TÜBİTAK and SANTEZ) submitted their SSI Information Sheets, and all insurance procedures of the incoming applications were completed. The application period for the insurance procedures in April is terminated on 25.04.2016, and those who have not submitted their applications will not be able to recieve the payment for April accordingly.

The dates of the current scholarship projects were shifted to the first day of the month in order to coordinate them with the SSI system. Scholarship students receiving scholarship in the period between the 15th day of the current month until the 15th day of the next month must prepare a partial scholarship application to receive the scholarship for the 16-31 March period. Scholarship Student Information Sheet must be submitted to our Unit by the 5th day of every month. In addition, as of April a transaction receipt (3 copies) and bank documents with the Project IBAN number (3 copies) must be submitted as well. (The rest of the documents will be submitted in 2 copies each, the current documents can be accessed from the BAP site).

From now onwards the information about addition or removal of a scholarship student, notification about occupational accidents or diseases, changes in workplace or SSI, sick leave for more than 3 days must be reported to the Unit in writing, otherwise the parties will be subject to the SSI administrative fine.

In this respect it is of high importance to pay attention to the provisions of the Letter of Undertaking enclosed in the attachment making the relevant notifications on time. The Letter of Undertaking must be signed and submitted to the Unit the latest on 5 May, 2016.

For your information.
