Thank you for your application to attend [Name of camp]. We were very pleased to have a very large number of high quality applications: we received nearly [Number of applications] applications from NGO support professionals and staff working at local levels across the region.
The applications were reviewed by a [Number of people]-person selection committee made up of the advisory group, event supporters and the organisers and partners. The selection committee was tasked with the difficult job of not only selecting people who meet the criteria of the event, but also in creating a balance of expertise and experience across countries. The selection process is thus very challenging, and the review process is still underway. We are also trying to secure additional funding to cover more travel scholarships.
We ask you for a few more days of patience while the selection process is finalised. In the meantime, if you think you may be able to help with local fundraising to cover the cost of your travel, please let us know. We will contact you on [Date] with final information on whether we will be able to invite you or not.
Thank you once again for your patience -- we sincerely hope you will be able to join us in [Location]!
On behalf of the organising team,
[Name of organiser]
