All applications undergo an extensive evaluation process by the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards Review and Selection Committees, which includes over 100 volunteers and leaders from across the country. Reviewers use an evaluation system that focuses on current demonstrated leadership, commitment, and project impact.
Each application is read by multiple evaluators whose scores determine which applications continue to the semifinalist and finalist rounds. Semifinalists are asked to provide status updates on their projects as well as contact information for three references.
The Selection Committee then reviews the finalist applications. Awardees are selected through a committee process in May, and Awardees will be notified in late May.
