Announcement follows

The 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 more diverse backgrounds than ever before, IFP will actively recruit 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.

General Guidelines

The International Fellowships Program provides support for up to three years of formal graduate-level study. Fellows will be selected from countries in Africa and the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and Russia where the Foundation maintains active overseas programs. U.S. nationals are not eligible, although Fellows may study in the United States.

Fellows are chosen on the basis of their leadership potential and commitment to community or national service as well as for academic excellence. Fellows may enroll in master's or doctoral programs and may pursue any academic discipline or field of study that is consistent with the interests and goals of the Ford Foundation. The Foundation currently works in fifteen fields to strengthen democratic values, reduce poverty and injustice, promote international cooperation, and advance human achievement.

Once selected, Fellows may enroll in universities in any part of the world, including their country of residence. The program will provide placement assistance to those Fellows not yet admitted to graduate school.

IFP support will enable Fellows to undertake language study and training in research and computer skills prior to graduate school enrollment. New Fellows will attend orientation sessions, and current Fellows may participate in learning and discussion activities designed to create information and exchange networks. Finally, the program provides resources for Fellows to conduct research or projects in their home countries after completing the fellowship period.

Who Is Eligible?

Applicants must be resident nationals or residents of an eligible IFP country.

In addition, successful candidates will:

  • Demonstrate superior achievement in their undergraduate studies and hold a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent.

  • Have substantial experience in community service or development-related activities.

  • Possess leadership potential evidenced by their employment and academic experience.

  • Propose to pursue a post-baccalaureate degree that will directly enhance their leadership capacity in a practical, policy, academic, or artistic discipline or field corresponding to one or more of the Foundation's areas of endeavor.

  • Present a plan specifying how they will apply their studies to social problems or issues in their own countries. Commit themselves to working on these issues following the fellowship period. IFP selects Fellows on the strength of their clearly-stated intention to serve their communities and countries of origin, and expects that they will honor this obligation.
