The AES is pleased to invite applications from emerging Indigenous evaluators from across the Australasian and Pacific region for support to participate in the AES Annual International Conference.

Applications are due COB Monday 22 July 2019 – no exceptions.

What is the purpose of the grants?

The Conference Support grants support Indigenous evaluators living and working in the Australasian region to participate in strengthening the knowledge base of the evaluation sector and to further develop their own capacities in evaluation with Indigenous people and communities. The grants are designed to support attendance and contribution to the AES conference. 


Past recipients: (L-R) Amohia Boulton (former AES Board member), Maimie Butler, Sharon Clarke (current AES Board member), Gavin Faeamani, Lafaele Lamositele-Sio, Roberta Williams, Gill Potaka-Osborne, Margaret Sapolu, Doyen Radcliffe (current AES board member)

What are the benefits of the grants to Indigenous evaluators?

Over the years these grants have enabled several emerging Indigenous evaluators from Australasia (the region consisting of Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and neighbouring islands in the Pacific Ocean) to further develop their evaluation skills and knowledge and their professional networks through actively participating in the annual AES conference. We have received very positive feedback on the benefits and opportunities that these grants have provided to recipients over the past five years.
