The Humanitarian Education Accelerator is based on four components:
- Identifying Cohort of Innovation Teams
- Cohort Development and Training
- Process Evaluation Funds
- Impact Evaluation
Selected candidates will benefit from:
- Tailored mentorship on the scaling process and on evaluation;
- Annual bootcamps to build organizational capacity and enable peer-support;
- A fully-funded external evaluation and;
- Up to £300’000 to strengthen evaluation capacity within your organisation.
