Philanthropy and Higher Education

Thank you Selma Talha-Jebril and Mirka Martel for featuring my research on foundations in this brilliant report which explores philanthropy’s role in funding international scholarship and fellowship programs. Framed by Ford Foundation and Institute of International Education, this research paper addresses a gap in the literature on foundations which fund international scholarship and fellowship programs around the world, particularly those whose focus is on social justice, equity and access.

Take a read below and see how scholarship and fellowship programs with common agendas can lead to sustainable partnerships and better program outcomes. I second the words of Selma Talha-Jebril: “Adopting a social justice approach to higher education is a win-win situation and, candidly, the one the world needs right now more than ever.”
