  • Application Assessment: All applications are reviewed by a selection committee. Candidates are evaluated on the basis of their academic performance through school and college and their involvement in extra-curricular activities. Their interests and concerns along with their thoughts and motivation for applying to the Anant Fellowship as expressed in their essays are also considered. 

  • Telephonic Interview: Short-listed candidates are interviewed on the telephone. Candidates will be notified in advance about when the telephonic interview will take place. It is typically a conversation regarding the information that the candidate has mentioned in their application and may include a discussion about their areas of interests.
