There is one deadline per year, the 1st of September. By this date the filled out nominating forms will have to be sent to us should the candidate be considered for this round. Nomination forms can be found on the website and nominations can be made throughout the year. However, it should be noted that the nomination forms can be subject to change and it is important to use the latest version. About six weeks before each deadline a call will be posted online and a reminder send via email to interested parties. In order to qualify the nomination form will need to be completely filled out and a CV and a picture of the candidate provided. Each round 16 candidates will be selected.
The following grants are available per round:
- 10 grants of 2.500 Euro
- 4 grants of 5.000 Euro
- 2 grants of 7.000 Euro
In the nomination form it should be clearly stated why the specific category is appropriate for the leadership development plan of the candidate. After the deadline the Advisory Committee of the JWH Initiative will meet to select the most suitable candidates. The nominators and candidates should notice that the selection process can take up to six weeks after the deadline. Should the candidate be selected to become a participant in the JWH he/she will be asked to develop a detailed leadership development plan, budget and timeframe. This will be part of the Memorandum of Understanding which subsequently will be signed by the participant, the nominator and the JWH Initiative. Furthermore the participant will agree to regular reporting and timekeeping in order to receive the full grant.
