    Greetings. I am the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer of a project. Based on the nature of the job and prospects, I will like to pursue a graduate degree in the area of monitoring and evaluation. Is there a program that can meet this need of mind. I already have the prospect of a graduate studies scholarship. If such program exists, when is admission starting/ending?

    Thank you.
