A JMS Selection Committee, with the support of the LACEA-Network Heads and RIDGE Research Directors, will evaluate the candidates and make the final selection. Selection will be based on the quality of the applications with consideration given to field and candidate diversity. The JMS Selection Committee this year is composed of Gustavo Canavire, German Cubas, Marcela Eslava, Chico Ferreira, Susan Parker, and Felipe Valencia.
