IIE Networker - Fall 2005 - 34

Fellows are just as likely to study internationally and pursue Master’s and doctoral degrees in a range of academic and applied fields as their male counterparts. Among Fellows selected in 2003 and 2004, 73 percent were born in rural areas or small cities, 86 percent had fathers who did not obtain university degrees, and 93 percent reported that their parental family income was at the national average or below. Among these same groups of Fellows, 87 percent are engaged in volunteer work to serve their communities, and over 50 percent have received formal recognition and awards for their leadership activities. Almost 1,800 more Fellows will be selected over the next four years, for a total of more than 3,300 Fellows. In addition to full support for tuition, living expenses, and related research and professional allowances, IFP provides Fellows with opportunities to participate in cohort-building at the national and regional level and in international leadership training institutes. We expect that with this array of activities, the more than 3,300 IFP Fellows—nearly 1,500 from Asia and Russia, 1,000 from Africa and 800 from Latin America—will become a powerful force for social change. The first steps on this road have already been taken. Over 1,100 Fellows have been accepted to more than 380 universities in nearly 40 countries, including high quality institutions in the Fellows’ home regions as well as universities in North America, the United Kingdom and Europe, and Australia. Over 300 Fellows have successfully completed their programs, and many alumni are already establishing new civil society organizations, providing primary health care and other services to poor communities, or reformulating policies and conducting research in vital sectors such as education and environmental management. Approximately 80 percent of IFP alumni are currently residing in their home countries, and nearly all of the alumni remaining abroad are pursuing further studies or short-term professional training. And to provide Fellows with the information resources and networking opportunities that will enable them to overcome many of the challenges associated with returning to their home countries or communities and carrying out their social justice projects, IFP has initiated successful alumni activities in Chile and Peru, Russia, and Mexico, with planning well under way in Tanzania, China, and Vietnam. Though still a young program, IFP is conclusively demonstrating some important lessons for international educators: There is a substantial, unmet demand for postgraduate study among highly qualified candidates from excluded and marginalized social groups and communities who rarely secure opportunities for higher education. Despite formidable obstacles, these individuals have earned undergraduate or first university degrees. IFP has received over 66,000 applications in competitions from 2001 to 2004. With the proper educational advising and preparatory training in language, computer and research skills, students from excluded and marginalized social groups can suc- SPANISH in COSTA RICA COSTA RICAN LANGUAGE ACADEMY - Costa Rican owned and operated - Professional instructors & small groups - Comfortable facilities in convenient location - Cross-cultural and friendly atmosphere - Home stays and cultural activities: Latin Dance, Cooking Classes, Excursions CRLA - Flexible schedules, start anytime - Low rates.
