  • Set and publish your deadline for admission and application; 
  • Check if your registration form is up to date.

3. Candidates can register for a fellowship

Process all applications for Orange Knowledge Programme individual fellowships:

  • Check if all details and uploaded documents (i.e. copy ID, employer’s statement and, if applicable, government statement) are available and correct;
  • Decide if a candidate will be nominated;

Check all applicants against eligibility as non-eligible applications are rejected, which might reduce the number of fellowships allocated to your institution.

4. Submit your grant application and nominate your candidates

  • Use Atlas to check the maximum number of candidates you may nominate;
  • Apply for additional housing if needed;
  • In Atlas, submit your grant application before the deadline;
  • One grant request per sub-programme per deadline;

Please do not submit your grant request right before the application deadline. If it does not meet a criterion, it cannot be submitted.
