Martel, M. & Bhandari, R. (2016). Social Justice and Sustainable Change: The Impacts of Higher Education. Ford Foundation. International Fellowships Program Alumni. Tracking Study, Report No. 1, April 2016. Pages: 34
A new report released by the Institute of International Education (IIE) shows that funding the post-graduate academic pursuits of emerging social justice leaders from marginalized groups leads to significant, measurable benefits for communities and organizations worldwide. The report is the first milestone in IIE’s groundbreaking 10-year study of the Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program (IFP). Social Justice and Sustainable Change shares the results of a 2015 survey of 1,861 IFP alumni from all 22 IFP countries. Findings from the report can be used to drive programmatic and policy decisions and shed light on research that supports the need for widening access to higher education in an effort to combat social inequality.
