We are committed to the development of Indigenous evaluation in the Australasian region.
Through programs like the Conference Support Grants we aims to increase the number and strengthen the evaluation capacities of Indigenous evaluators.
Every year we offer grants to emerging Indigenous evaluators from Australasian region (consisting of Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and neighbouring islands in the Pacific Ocean) to support their participation in the annual AES Annual International Evaluation Conference.
Evaluators with experience and demonstrated committment to strengthening their own evaluation capacity and contributing to the wider development of Indigenous evaluation capacity are encouraged to apply.
Grants recipients get support to attend pre-conference workshops, the full conference program, as well as opportunities to contribute to the conference program and network with evaluators from around the region and the world.
