CESBC 2018 Evaluation Conference #EvalBC18
Conference Bursaries for Students and Emerging Evaluators
Learning from our peers is a key theme of the 2018 CESBC Conference and it is recognized that students and emerging evaluators play a key role in this learning. Accordingly, the BC Chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society (CESBC) is committed to supporting the participation of students and emerging evaluators from across British Columbia in the conference through a diversity of initiatives, including the provision of bursaries.
The CESBC is offering bursaries to students and emerging evaluators to cover the conference registration fee as well as supplementary contributions to cover expenses for out-of-town attendees.
Bursaries are open to a) full-time and part-time students currently enrolled a post-secondary institution and b) new and emerging evaluators, defined as individuals who have been doing evaluation work, either full-time or part-time, for two years or less. Applicants from outside the Lower Mainland are strongly encouraged to apply.
Bursary recipients residing outside the Lower Mainland may apply for a bursary to cover the registration fee, a supplementary contribution for travel expenses, or both. For the supplementary travel contributions, recipients will be required to submit travel, accommodation and meal receipts for reimbursement. (Please also note that a billeting program will be offered for the conference to help with accommodation costs so check the conference website [https://cesbcy.ca/CESBC-2018-Conference] for updates).
How to Apply
To apply for a bursary, applicants are asked to submit a one to two page letter describing who they are, where they live, why they would like to attend the 2018 CESBC Conference, and how the conference theme fits with their evaluation interests and/or experience. The letter must also contain the application’s email address and phone number.
Students are asked to provide the name of the post-secondary institution in which they are currently enrolled.
New and emerging evaluators are asked to provide a brief snapshot of their employment in the field of evaluation (to confirm it has been for a duration of two years of less).
Along with the letter, those applying for the supplementary travel contribution are asked to provide an itemized estimate of costs (travel, accommodation and meal costs, if applicable).
Applicants are asked to send their letters to BCY+StudentCoord@evaluationcanada.ca by
Friday, November 9th, 2018.
Bursary recipients will be asked to share a brief write-up of what they learned and/or how they will apply what they have learned to be shared on CESBC’s social media platforms
