  • INTERVIEWING PHASE:โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹

    The 16 selected candidates will be required to have a personal interview with the principal researcher from the chosen research group along with two members from the Evaluation Panel. The interview will be by videoconference. Prior to the interview, the candidate will be required to apply for admission to their chosen PhD programme. This will ensure that there are no circumstances that would make it unfeasible for the candidate to enrol in the PhD programme.

    The purpose of the interview is to ensure the candidateโ€™s suitability to receive the grant. It does not entail an additional score, but it is a verification of the candidateโ€™s motivation, maturity and communication skills. It will also ensure that there are no circumstances that would make enrolment in the candidateโ€™s chosen doctoral programme unfeasible. In the event that, during the interview, a candidate is deemed to be unsuitable for any reason to receive the grant or an inconsistency between the score obtained and the reality observed in the interview is detected, the Evaluation Panel will be asked to re-evaluate the application.
