International Development UEA has secured 2 full scholarships for the Impact Evaluation Short course. The scholarships are funded by 3ie (http://www.3ieimpact.org/) and will be awarded to the two candidates who in the opinion of the Course Director best meet the following criteria:
1. You must qualify for the course in terms of current work role, previous professional experience and have the necessary skills and expertise in statistics (this will be established by your completion of this self-assessment test ).
2. You must be a low income country national, resident and working in your home country.
3. You must not have an alternative source of funding.
The scholarship will cover economy airfare, course fee (which includes accommodation) UK travel between airport and UEA and any costs associated with applying for a visa. The scholarship will not cover a daily allowance.
If you meet the criteria and would like to be considered for a scholarship please complete the application form (click the link below) and submit with a short CV and the completed self-assessment test before the deadline of 12 April. We will contact the successful candidates shortly after that date.
The course is conducted in English. Full competence in English, written and spoken is an essential requirement.
A working knowledge of basic statistics is strongly desirable. We will provide a self-assessment test to judge the level of statistical skills and brief revision of statistics up to multiple linear regression. An introduction to the statistical package Stata will be provided in addition to the specific impact evaluation techniques. It is assumed that participants will be familiar with the Windows operating system.
The target audience for this course is early- and mid-level professionals, post-graduate students and academics with interests in or working with international agencies, governments in developing and developed countries, think-tanks, NGOs and other donor organisations which need to understand the methods used in evidence-based policy making in order to evaluate and justify continued public spending on particular projects and programmes.
