Seed Alliance Evaluation Criteria

The three regional programs evaluated the projects that were given Grants based on the following criteria. The criteria is structured by twelve categories disaggregated in sub-categories that correspond either to the moment when proposal was approved or the Final Reports submitted by the Grant Recipients. Each sub-categories have differential scores theoretically defined according to their importance and contribution to their respective global category. Finally, weighted averages are calculated for each category and sub-category in order to present the final score percentage for comparative purposes.

A score card for each supported project can be seen when hovering over the Supported Projects map as well as the individual pages for each project.
