Applicants can appeal after any of three cut-off points: eligibility check, evaluation of their written application by the Evaluation Board, and personal interviews.
A dedicated email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, is available for official complaints or formal appeals. This will be accessible only by the Advisory Committee, which is bound by strict confidentiality.
The ARISE Advisory Committee will investigate the validity and significance of the allegations. If significant irregularities in the procedures are found, the Advisory Committee will devise a corrective measure for the current application (e.g. re-evaluation) and future selection rounds. In general, however, the decisions of the Evaluation Board, the interview panel, and the interviewers from the ARISE groups will not be overruled.
