4) All applicants must bring their last six months of electricity bill to the interview.
5) During the interview, questions regarding their electric bills, rent, ownership of residence, employed members of the family, etc., are asked to identify the importance of “need” for every applicant. All interviews are recorded. Please watch these interviews to see the type of questions and applicants’ responses.
6) The selection committee members use an evaluation form to judge these applicants, and the cumulative scores help them select scholars.
7) After the selection, 20% of the scholars’ homes are visited by one of the selection committee members or NED CSA to ensure the truthfulness of the applicants.
8) The selection list is then conveyed to the NED CSA office, and welcome letters are sent to the successful candidates.
