Washington Evaluators is pleased to announce three recipients of the 2017 New Professional Scholarship. The scholarship aims to support new professionals in integrating evaluation practices and approaches within their respective organizations.
“Through this scholarship opportunity, Washington Evaluators hopes to strengthen the sustainability of the evaluation community, by recruiting and helping to educate the next generation of evaluators,” said Washington Evaluators President Nick Hart. “The awardees reflect a growing desire in the DC community to embed evaluation in all types of activities and we look forward to their continued participation in the field.”
The scholarship was established in 2017 by the Washington Evaluators Board of Directors and designed through a task force led by Tamarah Moss from Howard University.
“We are excited to expose the awardees to integrated evaluation practices and approaches featured at the American Evaluation Association's annual conference and to their participation in our local evaluation community," Moss said.
