For the 2017 application process, submitted applications will be reviewed first by the regional nominating committee for the country of the applicant. Each committee will select and invite finalists in their region for an in-person or video interview with the members. Each committee will nominate six final candidates from their region to Pew for further consideration. Those applications, as well as all others from other countries that will be initially reviewed by the program office, will next be thoroughly reviewed by the National Advisory Committee in the United States. They will make the final selection of 2017 Pew fellows by April 2017.
