The following process will apply in the evaluation and selection of the applicants. Eligibility check for TG1 will be conducted by the home/sending HEI while that of TG2 will be conducted by the SHARE Secretariat. The criteria for eligibility will include:
A committee comprising of representatives of all the partner institutions will evaluate the applications. A panel of three members selected from the committee will assess and score each application independently based on the criteria outlined in the table below. Members of the panel for each candidate exclude the home/sending HEI and include a member from the host HEI.Weighting for Applications (MSc and PhD)
|Criteria||Max. points for MSc/MPhil.||Max. Points for PhD|
|Quality of Motivation Statement||05||05|
|Quality of Concept Note||00||10|
|Total Max. Points||10||10|
The results of the independent assessment will be compiled and aggregated. The final selection by the committee will be based on the aggregated scores and other cross-cutting criteria such as gender. Applicants currently in the diaspora will have an added advantage.
After the final selection of the applicants by the committee, the SHARE Secretariat will communicate to all applicants (by email) regarding the outcomes of the selection process. A candidate may be selected outright, put on reserve list or rejected. The communications will also be copied to the respective home/sending and host HEIs as necessary. Only the successful candidates will be published on this website unless we receive an objection from the candidate.
