The Centre on Governance (COG), in partnership with the Performance and Planning Forum - Performance and Planning Exchange (PPX), continues its mission to encourage excellence in academic research in the areas of program planning, performance measurement and evaluation. For the academic year 2020-2021, two scholarships are awarded to two students, members of the COG. These scholarships, worth $3,000, are awarded to the winners of the competition to conduct their doctoral research, prepare a scientific paper, or participate in academic conferences on program planning, performance and evaluation. Recipients will present their research to a non-academic audience or through the dissemination of a research note at one of the events organized by the PPX. Recipients for the year 2020-2021 are:
Pauliana Borgella, Ph.D. student in Public Administration under the supervision of Professor Éric Champagne for a project entitled: L’utilisation de l’évaluation de programmes comme outil d’amélioration des politiques publiques : le cas d’Haïti (Using program evaluation as a tool for improving public policies: the case of Haiti).
Jackson Reggie, Ph.D. student in Public Administration under the supervision of Professor Christopher Cooper, whose project is entitled: Implementation of the Results Agenda: Unpacking the role public servants play in institutional work (Mise en œuvre de la Politique sur les résultats : le décryptage du rôle des fonctionnaires dans le travail institutionnel).
This is part of a broader plan to support and mobilize the capacity of early-career professors and graduate students, members of the Centre on Governance (COG).
