Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program- for potential leaders for those from 22 different countries.


The Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program (IFP) provides
opportunities for advanced study to exceptional individuals who will
use this education to become leaders in their respective fields,
furthering development in their own countries and greater economic and
social justice worldwide. To ensure that Fellows are drawn from
diverse backgrounds, IFP actively seeks candidates from social groups
and communities that lack systematic access to higher education.

IFP is the largest single program ever supported by the Ford
Foundation. By investing $280 million over ten years through 2010, the
Foundation intends to build on its half century of support for higher
education. Foundation programs have long promoted the highest
educational standards and achievement. Ford fellowship recipients have
become leaders in institutions around the world and have helped build
global knowledge in fields ranging across the natural and social
sciences as well as the humanities and arts. IFP draws on this
tradition and underscores the Foundation’s belief that education
enables people to improve their own lives as well as to assist others
in the common pursuit of more equitable and just societies.
