IREX, Evaluation of Contemporary Issues (CI) Fellowship
The Contemporary Issues (CI) Fellowship program brought 922 promising mid-career professionals from 12 post-Soviet states to the United States to conduct policy research for four to six months. The EnCompass evaluation assessed the long-term impact that CI had on alumni careers and the extent to which CI fellows influenced policy change and/or contributed to institutional-level change. The evaluation used a combination of document review, key informant interviews conducted in Georgia and Kyrgyzstan, and an online survey.
