The Inter-American Foundation Grassroots Development Fellowship Program
The Inter-American Foundation (IAF) was created in 1969 by the United States Congress to fund the self-help initiatives of the organized poor in Latin America and the Caribbean and the groups that directly support them. To complement its work, the IAF has reinstated its Fellowships for candidates for Ph.D. degrees from United States universities as they conduct their dissertation research. IAF’s Fellowships are intended to increase awareness of grassroots development efforts while building a community of professionals and scholars knowledgeable in the subject. Fellows examine the efforts of the rural and urban poor to improve their lives, their methods of organization and production, and the policies and programs designed to alleviate their poverty. The IAF disseminates research findings of its Fellows to a broad audience concerned with development.
The Institute of International Education (IIE) has partnered with the IAF to administer its Grassroots Development Fellowship Program. The Web pages on this site provide essential information on all aspects of the IAF Fellowship Program. Interested individuals should carefully review the entire site. The IAF will not respond to inquiries. All inquiries should be directed to The Institute of International Education at firstname.lastname@example.org
