Evaluators of many of the most important personal grant schemes use a two-step approach for evaluating proposals. First the written proposals are evaluated and ranked, after which a first cut is made. Those who make it through to the next phase are then invited for a personal interview in front of a panel of experts. After this session, you will know why interviews are used, how best to prepare and how you can present yourself to the best of your ability to obtain your personal grant.
