Once selected, fellows may enroll in an appropriate university program anywhere in the world, including their country of residence. The program provides placement assistance to those fellows not yet admitted to graduate school. IFP support also enables fellows to undertake short-term language study and training in research and computer skills prior to graduate school enrollment. In addition, new fellows attend orientation sessions, while current fellows actively participate in learning and discussion activities designed to create information and exchange networks among IFP fellows worldwide. Finally, the program strongly encourages IFP alumni to maintain contact with the program after completing the fellowships to help them remain current in their respective fields through the expanding IFP network. http://www.fordfound.org/news/more/11272000ifp/index.cfm
