We are recruiting for the Class 32 of the Project and would appreciate you referring candidates to us. Self referral is OK. The Project requires that all its members be of good character. Also, we prefer individuals who have shown maturity and demonstrated abilities in their career, civic or academic endeavors. Although preference is given to those individuals who have reached senior and mid-level positions in their careers, we do accept a few highly talented young professionals who show high potential for achievement.
