Bursary Programme

Call for Applications

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce the EES 2020 Bursary Programme Call for Applications!

The bursary programme aims to contribute to building evaluation capacity in developing countries. The selection gives priority to applicants who are active in the evaluation communities in their home countries. In turn, the presence of evaluators from all over the world enriches the conference experience for all participants, as it contributes to a diversity of perspectives, including on the realities of undertaking evaluations in developing countries.

Eligible candidates are:

  • A citizen from a developing country (in receipt of overseas development assistance) and live and work in a developing country for most of the time (*Applicable for citizens of countries with low-income, lower-middle income or upper-middle income economies according to the classification of GDP per capita of the World Bank. Some bursary sponsors have specific requirements which EES will reflect in the selection process.)
  • Involved in evaluation in their home country (*Proof of this needs to be provided in the application form.)
  • Submitting an abstract for a paper (preferred), poster or a panel presentation at the conference

Applications will go through a strict review process during which additional information may be asked from the applicants.

Applicants and eventual beneficiaries agree to participate in specific events organised in relation to the bursary programme during or outside the conference.

Please note the EES bursary support can only be received once by each individual: individuals who received bursary support under previous conferences are not eligible.

There is little time: please submit your application no later than 5th April, 2020. You must also submit an abstract before that date too!  Please also indicate in your abstract submission that you are a bursary applicant.  To do this add ‘bursary applicant’ under the field ‘Contribution details’ alongside your type of contribution (presentation, panel, poster, roundtable etc) in the abstract submission form.  Here is the link to the EES 2020 Abstract Call.

Please feel free to circulate this email to relevant colleague evaluators from developing countries.
