The NAD Executive Office has screened all applications to make sure that applicants meet the formal criteria. After the screening, the Selection Committee – consisting of the NAD Scientific Board and representatives from the NAD Research Columns (basic and clinical researchers) – will go through the applications and select approximately 50 candidates for online interviews to be conducted mid-September. Candidates selected for interviews will receive detailed information about the format and what to prepare.
After all interviews, the Selection Committee will recommend the 16 best qualified candidates to NAD’s Governing Board which will render the final decision.
All applicants will receive a decision in October. The 16 recipients of a 2024 NAD fellowship will be publicly announced in January 2024 in connection with the start of the pre-PhD year.
