Two candidates are nominated from each medical school by faculties. All candidates have to submit a report of their work and a proposal of their special projects to the Anandhamahidol Foundation committee. The committee then interview all nominees. Finally, only around 10 candidates are selected to receive the award. Each term lasts 3 years (36 months). Each scholar has to submit an annual report to the Anandhamahidol Foundation for evaluation.
