Academy Fellows include eminent evaluation thinkers, highly experienced evaluators, mid-career practitioners, as well as young, and emerging evaluators (YEEs).
The Academy will support Fellows to work together to initiate, design, and implement initiatives that fall within its priorities
Academy activities are volunteer driven. However, in some case, operational expenses can be met and Fellows can apply for small grants (normally US$10,000 or less).
Friends of the Academy consist of individual and institutional donors who recognize that evaluation is a public good and a key instrument of democratic governance and corporate social responsibility. They include foundations, international organizations, government agencies, private corporations and individuals who share the vision of a strong and vibrant evaluation community, operating across borders and dedicated to a world where governments, private corporations and civil society organizations are accountable to citizens and learn from experience to achieve a world where peace, justice and respect for nature prevail and where development benefits all.
