IPDET scholarships target actors with potential catalytic effect within developing countries, including government officials, parliamentarians, evaluation practitioners, managers, young evaluation professionals, members of Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation (VOPEs), and students. Through this targeting, the scholarships enable individuals who would not otherwise have the means to access the IPDET program.
The Scholarship Selection Committee reviews all applications in a fair and equitable manner and makes selection recommendations.
In order to be eligible for a scholarship, the applicant:
- must be a national and resident of a low-income, lower-middle income or upper-middle income country (*see the country lists below);
- has no other funding available to finance the tuition fee.
An applicant will be considered on a priority basis if he/she is:
- conducting, managing, commissioning and/or using evaluations;
- holding a position of influence that is likely to foster wider adoption of M&E practices;
- working in an organization with a long-term plan to build evaluation capacity, where the IPDET training is an integral part of a more comprehensive plan;
- generating impact within the M&E sector of the developing country where he/she is based after participating in the IPDET program.
- Be aware, that you cannot apply for an online and on-site scholarship at the same time! Choose beforehand, for which scholarship you want to apply.
- If you were awarded with an on-site scholarship in 2022, you are not eligible for an on-site scholarship in 2023. But feel free to apply for an online scholarship in 2023.
- We kindly urge only those applicants in real need of financial support to apply for a scholarship, since the demand outnumbers the funds available.
- Scholarship recipients are responsible for ensuring that they provide all required information within the stipulated time frame and that all information is correct and accurate, to the best of their knowledge. Scholarship recipients are also responsible for sharing post-course information (i.e., sharing a qualitative letter and filling out a quantitative survey).
