The JJ/WBGSP Secretariat uses the average score of the two assessors and the following criteria to select the finalists:

- Unusual circumstances/hardships, when assessing the employment experience and other aspects of an application;
- Giving scholarships to those applicants who, other things being equal, have limited access to financial resources for graduate studies abroad.
