2011 AES Conference Support Grants 
 The AES is providing grants for emerging Indigenous evaluators to meet the partial or full costs of attendance at the 2011 conference where the financial constraints may prevent participation.  The ultimate goal and vision of these grants is to increase the number of Indigenous evaluators in the Australasian area and to strengthen their evaluation capacities.  
 The grants are open to emerging evaluators in the following groups:
 ·        Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living in Australia
 ·        Maori living in Aotearoa / New Zealand
 ·        Pacific Island peoples (including those living in Aotearoa / New Zealand and PNG) 
 ·        Native East Timorese people.  
 At  least one grant will be reserved for an Aboriginal or Torres Strait  Islander who meets the support grant criteria. Conference places will be  offered to Indigenous evaluators with some experience in evaluation  who:
 ·        have demonstrated their interest in and commitment to evaluation;
 ·        aim to strengthen their own evaluation capacity; and 
 ·        can potentially contribute to the wider development of Indigenous evaluation capacity. 
 Testimonials  from previous grant recipients about the significant benefits and  opportunities that the grants have given them can be found at http://www.aes2011.com.au/rego-grants.asp
 Members and their organisations are asked if they can do one or more of the following:
 ·        Promote the conference to Indigenous evaluators.
 ·        Encourage eligible emerging Indigenous evaluators to apply for a conference support grant. 
 ·        Provide some mentoring and support to grant applicants (the AES will also provide some support with preparing applications).
 ·        Sponsor  or part-sponsor an Indigenous evaluator to attend – sponsors will be  acknowledged in the official program, on the AES conference website and  in other promotional materials. 
 Key dates:  
 Requests for assistance with preparing the application must be received by 13 May 2011 
 Applications close and must be received by 27 May 2011
 Applicants will be notified by 24 June 2011 
 Further information, as well as the application form and the selection criteria, is available at http://www.aes2011.com.au/rego-grants.asp
