International Fellows' Research

International Fellows Research

The International Fellows Program (IFP) provides emerging leaders, scholar-practitioners, as well as Third-Sector decision makers an opportunity to expand their knowledge of philanthropy and civil society through study and research. From 1989 to 2017, the program hosted 208 Fellows from 65 countries and territories, helping to build an international network of researchers and practitioners in the field.  For the first decade, the program's curriculum focused annually on a particular theme.  In 2000, community foundations and community philanthropy were introduced as topics for ongoing study, along with forays into diaspora (transnational) giving, and corporate social responsibility (CSR), social justice and other current trends. 

As community foundations and community philanthropy make up the bulk of the research focus, this category is arranged by country.  Abstracts and/or full text of selected Fellows' research are available below by clicking on the links.  Visit the "Other Research and Publications" and view under "International Fellows Program Published Research" for additional Fellows' research that was published by the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society.

To learn more about the contributions of International Fellows Program alumni and their impact on the field, read the program's précis, brochure, and evaluation report.  See also the booklet "Spreading the Seeds of Community Giving" and case studies on the C.S. Mott Community Foundation Centenniel microsite.
