CDC Evaluation Fellowship
The CDC Evaluation Fellowship Program represents a major commitment by CDC to program evaluation and program improvement. Fellows work under the leadership of CDC's Chief Evaluation Officer; they are matched with CDC host programs to work on program evaluation activities for/with those programs. Host programs are selected through a competitive process to ensure the activities build the knowledge base of the program and enhance the professional development of the Fellow. The CDC is currently seeking applicants for the 2016-17 class of the CDC Evaluation Fellowship Program.
2016-17 Evaluation Fellowship Program – Deadline April 15, 2016
Program evaluation is an essential organizational practice in public health. At CDC, program evaluation supports our agency priorities. When programs conduct strong, practical evaluations on a routine basis, the findings are better positioned to inform their management and improve program effectiveness.
CDC’s Program Performance and Evaluation Office (PPEO) sets standards and expectations for agency-wide evaluation; delivers tools, technical assistance and resources to enhance evaluation efforts; and provides support for evaluation capacity-building across CDC programs.
CDC’s Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health has provided a set of steps and standards for practical evaluation by programs and partners. While the focus is public health programs, the approach can be generalized to any evaluation effort.
