Executive Summary

Title: The SCAR and COMNAP Fellowship scheme

Authors: R Badhe, R Ravindra

Introduction/ Background: 13th of June 2012 was the deadline for applications for the Fellowships for 2012. The selection committee consisted of EXCOM members, SSG/SRP Officers (or their representatives), members of the CBET group, representative of COMNAP, representative of APECS. In total there were 18 valid applicants. To prevent any one of the evaluation team having to take on a large burden, the tasks were divided up, depending on the subject of both the reviewer and applicant.

Important Issues or Factors: EXCOM were asked to approve the selection of the 2012 fellowships, based on the recommendations of the Selection Committee, as these were presented at the Prize Ceremony at the OSC 2012.
