The International Fellows Program
The International Fellows Program (IFP) is a nine-month internship for American graduate students interested in field development experiences in Sub-Saharan African regions. The program was founded in 1987 by Reverend Leon Howard Sullivan, president of the International Foundation for Education and Self-Help, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting community development initiatives in Third World countries.
Students selected to participate in the IFP are viewed as scholarly practitioners and are expected to contribute their wide range of skills to development initiatives. The program offers these students a unique opportunity to contribute their knowledge and learn about the diverse cultures and economies of African nations. Fellows work with government ministries, education systems and the indigenous populations in a spirit of congeniality and good will to achieve community goals.
