Need a Bursary?
The AEN secretariat and 3ie will be offering bursaries for attending EVIDENCE 2018 in a similar process to the bursary applications for EVIDENCE2016. Applicants will be required to submit an indication of how they intent to map out the evidence ecosystems in their respective countries, sectors, or areas of work. Successful applicants should be prepared to submit an overview and visualisation on this to present during the poster pod sessions at the conference, should their abstracts be accepted.
Two types of bursaries are on offer. Applicants can either apply for a full Bursary which covers the cost of conference registration, economy class return air travel, and accommodation for the duration of the conference. Alternatively, applicants are invited to submit applications for a partial bursary which is a waiver of the conference registration fee only.
Applicants will only be allowed to apply for one of the bursaries on offer (either AEN or 3ie).
The intention of the secretariat offering bursaries is to provide those individuals who would otherwise not be able to attend EVIDENCE 2018 with the opportunity to participate in the meeting. To be eligible to apply for a bursary, applicants should be residents of an African state and should be employed as evidence users or producers. Only the most meritorious applications can be supported by the limited bursary fund. Bursary applications open on 1 March 2018 – make sure you submit your bursary application to show the world that #Africalovesevidence.
