Ford Foundation $75 Million Grant Extends International Fellowships Program Through 2014
Contributed by Lea Ayoub   
A new $75 million grant from the Ford Foundation will allow 900 additional Fellows to participate in its International Fellowships Program (IFP), an innovative model that broadens access to advanced study for people from some of the world's poorest communities. The new funds will enable the program to build on its success providing opportunities for advanced study to talented, socially committed men and women in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Russia who come from groups that have traditionally lacked access to higher education. The 2,065 IFP Fellows selected to date have won admission to master's, doctoral, and other advanced degree programs at top universities in Europe, North America, and in their home countries and regions. A total of 4,440 Fellows will receive support by the end of the program.
