  • The structure of the proposal: rationale, innovation, approach and outcomes expected
  • Is the budget realistic and meets the requirements of the guidelines?
  • Competence of the principal investigator and the staff
  • Feasibility of the project
  • Is this an innovative proposal
  • Sustainable effects on the field of sexual and reproductive health

ISC will make the decision regarding the winners of grant applications with involvement of the Treasurer or Vice Treasurer.

The decision process for granting a humanitarian aid project is also described in the rules & policies.
The members of the Executive Committee (EC) are involved in the selection procedure. The final decision is made by the Executive Committee.
