During the NBBTP application review process, the NBBTP Selection Committee rates and ranks NBBTP applicants using a three-phase, structured assessment process. The first phase is based on the completed application, references, essay, official transcripts and optional supplemental material. After this initial review process, quarter-finalists are invited to phone-interview with members of the Selection Committee. Upon successful completion of the phone interview, semi-finalists are invited to participate in two days of personal interviews on-site at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. Fellowship offers are conditional, pending verification of authenticity of application materials, official transcripts, and the applicant’s ability to meet Federal guidelines for working with select agents.
