Evaluation of the Danida Fellowship Centre

The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs announces a tender for an evaluation of the Danida Fellowship Centre in Copenhagen.

The centre was founded in 1990 to manage and implement the Danida supported fellowship programme. The programme supports capacity development in developing countries - primarily, but not solely, Danida’s programme countries - by organising and/or implementing CD support in terms of courses, study, research, study tours and seminars in Denmark as well as in developing countries.

Over the years, considerable resources have been allocated to the fellowship programme. In recent years, DKK 60 million per year have been allocated on the bill of finance. Of this, DKK 50 million supports training activities of a political, strategic or technical, innovative nature for participants in Danida programme countries. The remaining DKK 10 million is earmarked for MBA studies at Copenhagen Business School, Aarhus Business School or in South Africa or MSc at LIFE, University of Copenhagen.

The fellowship programme aims to give fellows the qualifications to work in their home country ensuring relevant studies at the right price, creating the best framework for the study period.

The deadline for the submission of tenders is December 14, 2011
