Selection Procedures

The Fellowship Program Committee is tasked with reviewing and assessing the applications via an objective scoring system. Several factors are taken into consideration; these range from the proposed training plan and academic qualifications to age and country scores, among others.

The application to the Fellowship Program is competition based; only the candidates with the highest scores will be granted a fellowship.

Candidates who are unsuccessful may apply again. The maximum amount of applications under the same host mentorship is limited to three times.
