Canadian Evaluation Society Educational Fund (CESEF)

The CESEF provides scholarships and other learning opportunities for Canadians who wish to deepen their knowledge in the field of program evaluation. The Fund is governed by a Board of Directors made up of evaluation specialists who believe in the power of evaluation to improve programs for the benefit of society.

Student Evaluation Case Competition

The CES/CESEF Student Evaluation Case Competition is a two-round annual Canadian competition that helps post-secondary students build and showcase their program evaluation skills. Through the use of real-world programs and cases, students work in teams to respond to a request for proposals over a limited time period.

Student Excellence advancing Evaluation Knowledge (SEEK) Award

The CES/CESEF SEEK Award recognizes student excellence contributing to the advancement of evaluation theory and/or practice. It is designed to foster student engagement in evaluation, profile evaluation-related work conducted by students studying within Canadian post-secondary institutions and advance excellence in student evaluation projects.

Consortium of Universities for Evaluation Education (CUEE)

CUEE aims to increase access to high quality, graduate-level education in evaluation that enables its graduates to acquire the required competencies to practice as evaluators. CUEE also aims to facilitate opportunities for faculty members to communicate, share resources and collaborate on research and publications that may involve students, and are geared toward enhancing the theory and practice of the evaluation field.
