IIE Launches ground-breaking 10-year alumni tracking study for the Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program

The Institute of International Education (IIE) has launched a 10-year longitudinal study which aims at examining the impact of the Ford Foundation International Fellowship Program (IFP). With more than 4 300 alumni spread all over 22 countries, the Ford Foundation International Fellowship Program (IFP) represents an important scholarship programme for aspiring students from marginalised backgrounds, giving them the chance to earn a graduate degree and allowing them to use their new skills and knowledge on behalf of their communities in order to tackle the problems of their countries of origin. The IFP was launched in 2001 and has since then allowed its beneficiaries to pursue their studies in more than 600 universities in almost 50 countries across the globe.
