This body will review the applications submitted by the students from the member universities of the network for the 2023 call of the mobility programme addressed to students.

The Compostela Group of Universities (CGU) unveiled on 26 April on the webpage of the Stella Junior programme the composition of the selection committee, which will be responsible for reviewing the 64 applications received for the 2023 call. The academic staff will evaluate them and nominate the ten people who will receive a CGU grant, which will help to cover the costs of their training stay at a member university.

As in previous editions, this body is led by Carmen Vargas, the coordinator of Stella Junior and Vice-Rector for Institutional Relations and Internationalisation of the University of Seville. Scott Venezia Corral, the Dean for International Affairs for CETYS University System, and Tomasz Domański, professor at the Faculty of International and Political Studies of the University of Lódz, are members too.

This selection committee will review the 64 applications submitted by students from fourteen higher education institutions affiliated with the CGU. Specifically, from the universities of Adam Mickiewicz, Autonomous of Chihuahua, Guadalajara, Jaume I, La Salle A.C., Leon, Masaryk, Peruvian of Applied Sciences, Rey Juan Carlos, Seville, Valencia, Worcester and Zaragoza.

In their analysis of the applications, they will take into account the evaluation criteria set out in the guidelines for the 2023 call of Stella Junior. Criteria include the adaptation of the curricular profile to the requested placement offer, the average grade of the academic transcript and not having received a grant in the last two editions of the programme. Likewise, priority will be given to international and intercontinental mobility and foster geographical and university distribution.
