EES Bursary Program

Call for applications is now closed

As in previous years, EES offers financial support to a limited number of participants from developing countries for attending the biennial conference. The support covers travel and accommodation costs as well as the conference registration and EES membership fees.

The aim

The bursary program aims to contribute to building evaluation capacity in developing countries. The selection gave priority to applicants who are active in the evaluation communities in their home countries. After the Conference, successful candidates are encouraged to share their experience with other evaluators in their country and region. 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.

Selection criteria

In order to be eligible for bursary support under this program, candidates had to:

  • Be a citizen  from a developing country and live and work in a developing country for most of the time
  • Be involved in evaluation in their home country
  • Submit an abstract for a paper or panel presentation at the conference

EES bursary support can only be received once by each individual.

EES wishes to acknowledge and thank the following donors who contributed funds that enabled about thirty evaluators from developing countries to join the conference.
