CARTA has commenced the process of recruiting the next cohort of Fellows. Cohort 5 selection process kicked off on June 1, 2014 when a total of 62 nominees were invited to undertake pre Joint Advanced Seminar (pre JAS 1) on line assignments to compete for the 25 fellowships available on offer in 2014/15 period.
The 62 nominees will submit their work by July 15, 2014 to enable the CARTA Secretariat undertake a grading exercise with the fellowships awarded in September 2014 based on their performance and the quality of their application package. The package includes an outline of the fellows' research proposal and a resume.
A nomination by the CARTA partner institutions is not necessarily an award of a fellowship but rather, a step towards the fellowship. Nominated fellows compete for the few fellowships through the pre JAS 1 assignments and quality of the the application package. The CARTA Secretariat wishes the nominated fellows luck.
