Academic achievements, in particular GPA, were taken into account in the evaluation process. Candidates with a GPA of 8 or above qualified for the scholarship. During the selection process, the top five candidates were contacted individually by the selection committee, taking into account their academic achievements. They were required to submit a motivation letter. This letter served as an additional assessment to understand the candidates’ motivation, aspirations, and potential contribution to the field or program.
