All applications would be scored against a set of rules and the scores would be published for every applicant.
The decision for enrollment of a prospective candidate into Program Kasthuri would be dependent on the following criteria:
|Criterion No.||Criterions||Weightage on scores|
|1 – Family need score||Economic condition & resultant impact of enrollment this would include:
|2A – Academic excellence score||Academic track record
|2B – Academic excellence scrutiny||
|3 – Personal Interview score||Display of personal & family resilience through an interview
The objective components namely points 1, 2A & 2B of the selection criterion would be driven by a scoring model to make the process more transparent and free of any kind of bias. The score on the Personal Resilience part of the evaluation criterion would be done by set of 3 personal evaluators after a personal interview with applicant & his family individually.
The actual weightage for each of the sub criterion mentioned above will be determined annually by Swadha Foundation & kept confidential.
