Selection Process

selection process

Each applicant is considered on a case-by-case basis according to the defined scholarship criteria. Compliance with all criteria does not guarantee a scholarship. Attention will be paid to the applicant’s ability to improve evaluation practice and their ability to disseminate lessons learned at IPDET.

Appropriate gender and country balance will be ensured among scholarship recipients.

The selection panel consists of the Head of Program, and one other member of the IPDET Steering Group.


Scholarship applicants will be notified latest 4 weeks after closing of application if their application was successful or not, or if they remain on a waiting list. The selected scholarship recipients will be asked to formally confirm the acceptance of the scholarship. In case a scholarship recipient cancels his/her scholarship after confirmation, he/she will not be eligible for a scholarship for the following 5 years!

In case your scholarship application is rejected, you can switch your application to self-payer.
