Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Evaluation Fellows Program

Posted on May 23, 2011

We would like to bring to your attention the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Evaluation Fellows Program. It is an opportunity that could be of interest to some of your current or former students or
colleagues. The program is entering its fourth year now and the opportunity exists for qualifying individuals to participate in this fourth cohort of fellows.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Evaluation Fellows Program is designed to diversify the evaluation field by providing individuals from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities with the necessary skills and training to become program evaluators. The Evaluation Fellows program invites emerging professionals who have graduated from a master’s or doctoral degree program within the last three years to apply for a one-year, full-time fellowship with an organization that specializes in evaluation. Individuals from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities include ethnic or racial minorities, those from low-income communities, first-generation college graduates, or others who have been historically underrepresented in the evaluation field.

The program’s ultimate goal is to infuse the evaluation field with well-trained individuals from diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to meet the increasing diversity of programs and communities that the profession serves with approaches that are culturally responsive in conceptual and practical demonstration.

A call for applicants is posted at:
http://www.rwjf-evaluationfellows.org/application-page

The deadline for applying is July 1, 2011. Current students should be scheduled to graduate by December 2011. The fellowship year begins March 1, 2012.

Kindly pass the information on to anybody who might be interested in such an opportunity. For any questions, please contact Dr. Helga Stokes, e-mail: stokesh@duq.edu; tel.: 412-396-4057.
