Applications will be evaluated by a panel of experts in the fields of ocean engineering and ocean instrumentation. The main criteria for evaluation include:
- The project – Is it innovative? Is it technically sound?
- The candidate – Important criteria include intellectual ability and achievement, evidence of creativity and initiative, and potential for a career that will impact ocean engineering and instrumentation.
Preference will be given to candidates who have a well-defined thesis direction, but who still have enough remaining time to work toward their Ph.D. such that the receipt of a Link Foundation Fellowship could make a difference.
