FELLOWSHIP: Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program (IFP)
The Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program (IFP) is pleased to announce the Ninth round of fellowships in Kenya for the Academic Year 2011/2012. During this round, the program will offer fifty-one (51) Masters Fellowships in East Africa tenable in any part of the world, including Africa. Seventeen (17) Masters Fellowships will be offered to applicants in Kenya. Each fellowship covers tuition fees, health insurance, subsistence allowance, travel and other related expenses. IFP will provide full support of up to three (3) years of formal post- graduate study.
The program provides opportunities to individuals from diverse backgrounds, social groups and communities that have traditionally lacked systematic access to higher education. Fellows are selected on the strength of their academic achievement, leadership skills and social commitment. Upon completion of their studies, the fellows are expected to enhance their leadership skills in fields that further the Ford Foundation’s goals of strengthening democratic values, reducing poverty and injustice, promoting international cooperation and advancing human achievement.
