Decision/Grading Criteria 

It is up to the discretion of the PAG chair and the PAG committee as to how applications will be assessed and graded each year.

Reponses to questions MUST fall within the word limit; reviewers will not read past the allotted word count and the score might be affected. It is in the submitter's best interest to keep responses concise and clear.

To prevent bias, those PAG committee members who either work with or know considerably well are recused from scoring this person's application. 

 

Please check back at a later date as to how 2018-2019 applications will be processed.
