The American Evaluation Association (AEA) and the International and Cross-Cultural Evaluation Topical Interest Group (ICCE TIG) are pleased to invite professional evaluators living and practicing in developing countries to submit applications for International Travel Awards to attend and present at the 2018 AEA Annual Conference. The conference is scheduled for October 29 - November 3, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
This year we anticipate awarding nine International Travel Awards of up to $2,000 USD each. In addition to the funds, awardees also receive waived conference registration, pre/post conference workshops, and AEA membership. The awards may be used to cover travel costs (flights, visas, etc.), food, and shared accommodations. Please note that awards are paid out as reimbursement of documented expenses and are paid only to those who are selected, who attend, and who make the anticipated presentation.
Evaluators of all stripes make mistakes, even experienced ones! Join us for a lively conversation and Q&A on evaluation bloopers and lessons learned led by seasoned evaluators Isaac Castillo, Susan Igras, and Kylie Hutchinson.
