The India Alumni Fellowship 2018 will be judged by a five-member panel. The panel chair is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the process.
Prof Edwin van Teijlingen, Bournemouth University (Chair)
Prof Guy Starkey, Bournemouth University
Jana Kuncova, Global Engagement Mobility Manager, Bournemouth University
Jonathan Goode, Head of Alumni Relations, Bournemouth University
Sohini Roy, President of Indian Society, Bournemouth University
The panel will follow a three-step process to select the Fellow.
Stage 1: Desk review
The first stage involves a review of all entries to ensure that they meet the submission requirements of the award. Entries which fall short of the eligibility requirements of the call are rejected.
Stage 2: Sub-committee review
In the second stage, submissions are assigned to a sub-committee of judges.This stage involves an in-depth evaluation of all entries. The sub-committee then selects the best entries to proceed to the final stage.
Stage 3: Full panel review
In this stage, the full panel of judges reviews the shortlisted submissions put forward by the sub-committees. After a careful assessment of the shortlisted entries, the full panel decides on the fellow.
Judging criteria and process
Entries will be assessed on the basis of the strength and feasibility of the proposal. Judges work independently, without consulting each other. Entries are ranked by each judge in Stage 2, and a shortlist arrived at based on the rankings. The same process is followed in the final stage to decide the Fellowship winner.
The winner of the India Alumni Fellowship 2018 will be announced on 16 February at the British Council, New Delhi, during the closing ceremony of Bournemouth University’s Festival of Learning India 2018.
