The selection process involves two phases.
During the first phase, a panel of Humanity in Action staff, board members, and Senior Fellows reads over all of the applications and selects a pool of finalists for further review by the national Humanity in Action’s Selection Committees.
During the second phase, the Selection Committees read and evaluate all finalists’ applications and conduct group interviews with finalists. All finalists will be interviewed by a small panel of the Selection Committee together with two or three other finalists. The additional reference will be contacted at this point.
The final selections are made based on this second reading, reference information, and the interview.
