Proposal Evaluation Process

 Evaluation Process


The proposal evaluation process typically involves several stages aimed at ensuring thorough scrutiny and fair assessment.


Firstly, upon submission, proposals undergo careful review to ensure they meet the specified guidelines and criteria.


Following this initial screening, proposals are assigned to relevant committee members for detailed evaluation. Our committee consists of nine members from diverse disciplines. These evaluators assess the proposals based on predetermined criteria such as academic rigor, feasibility, potential for future collaboration, and impact. Scores are assigned to each proposal, along with constructive feedback or comments.


After individual evaluations, there is typically an email exchange with representatives from the international school of each institution, followed by a joint meeting to compare assessments, resolve discrepancies, and select the top proposals.


Finally, recommendations and decisions are made regarding the acceptance or rejection of the proposals. Throughout this process, transparency, and adherence to established protocols are essential to maintain the integrity of the evaluation process and ensure the selection of high-quality projects.
