The selection process
The PEP Network provides a sophisticated program of scientific and financial support for research teams in developing countries to conduct state-of-the-art research on poverty issues. PEP research grants are awarded to teams selected in an open but highly competitive call for proposals.   
Each proposal submitted to PEP is carefully examined by leading members of the related research program’s committee, based on a list of selection criteria - feasibility, scientific rigor, policy relevance, etc. Through several rounds of pre-selection, comments and amendments, only a few (less than 10% approval rate) of the most promising research projects will be granted funding. Below is the list of this year’s champions.
