The final approval for grants and fellowships are made by the project selection committee, comprising a board member, the executive director and the programme coordinator/s. The decision is made on the basis of:
Matrix system: A process to evaluate the potential of each applicant clearly. Under the system the prospective partners are marked on the following:
Rooted in the community
Clarity of plan/role/work
Personal struggle for leadership
The above indicators help in highlighting the qualities of the applicants thus enabling the selectors to make an informed decision.
Any additional information available with the board.
The entire assessment process could take three to four months.
Once the Projects are selected, face sheets are prepared to consolidate the information and Letters of Offers sent out.
