Most of the REX Karmaveer Global Fellows are researched and nominated by our Council of Fellows. REX Karmaveer Global Fellowships is the only fellowship owned and managed by erstwhile fellows who choose future fellows with extensive reference checking and consultation with experts across all fields. Selections are made by the group as a whole, not by individuals. Most of the nominated future fellows are also sponsored by former fellows through the unique REX GIFFFT program.

There is no algorithm for how we select our Fellows. We select Fellows based on their accomplishments or their potential to accomplish in their respective or other fields, the potential impact of their work and also, most importantly, their character. The ideal applicant is multidisciplinary in her or his pursuits.
