Criteria for review of applications
Basic eligibility criteria and targeted profiles are discussed under Who should apply?
In addition, applications should:
- Describe their project and their team, clearly articulating the following elements:
- The goal of the project, including a statement of the problem or need the project will address
- The role and expected contributions of each of the team members in relation to the project (only those with a substantial and sustained role in the project should apply to participate in the cohort)
- A list of stakeholders who affect or are impacted by their project
- A description of major requirements, or likely challenges, that will need to be met for the project to succeed
- Decisions or commitments (of responsibility, time, money, resources, etc.), that have been made that demonstrate readiness of your institution and/or your local colleagues to support work on the project or initiative. Even if the support demonstrated is small, you should be able to cite specific communications, measures taken, etc.
- A timeline, even if provisional, showing dates by which intermediate goals will be achieved, both pre- and post-DHI-B
- Relate DHI-B to their project, explaining how DHI-B will help the project to address the needs or challenges described above and to succeed in meeting its goal. In particular, applications should:
- Indicate what specific course(s) the team members intend to enroll in, and how these courses relate to their project and its objectives
- Indicate any other goals the team has in participating in DHI-B, not directly related to the courses
In cases where qualifying applications exceed the number slots available, applications may be evaluated in terms of equitable support across the consortium.
