The Board will make the final decision based on the recommendations of the Joint Expert Panels and Due Diligence reports submitted by the Secretariat. The Board will select the final awardees. The number of awardees may vary from award to award, depending upon the merit and quality of the proposal and the availability of funds with the Endowment Fund program. The Board reserves the right to adjust elements of the selection process and inform applicants of any adjustments, and to reasonably interpret the language and definitions of this handbook in cases of dispute or confusion. The award announcements will be made by January.
