About this book

This book explores the multiple pathways from scholarships for international study to positive social change. Bringing together studies from academic researchers, evaluators and program designers and policymakers from Africa, Asia, Latin and North America, Europe, and Australia, the book compiles the latest research and analysis on the policy, practice, and outcomes of international scholarship programs. Contributions examine the broad trends in sponsored overseas study, program design considerations, the dynamics of the immediate post-scholarship period and the impact of scholarships on international education and development. Particular attention is focused on assessment and evaluation, the complexities of selecting awardees, the dynamics of returning home and concerns about brain drain and the state of knowledge and research on long-term outcomes of international scholarships with social change aims.nt>

Reviews

“Imaginatively crafted with inputs by authors with diverse backgrounds and expertise, this book convincingly establishes the changing social function of international scholarships and stimulates future debates on the subject.” (Rwekaza S. Mukandala, Vice Chancellor, University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania)

“This volume powerfully demonstrates the many ways scholarship programs can have impact beyond individual scholars. The authors masterfully weave together academic research and case studies of innovative scholarship programs proven to create global leaders, reverse so-called brain drain, and improve society.” (Hilary Pennington, Vice President for Education, Creativity, and Free Expression, The Ford Foundation)

“Higher education is one of the most powerful drivers for innovation in a country. Scholarship programs unlock pathways to

social change and innovative approaches to issues of common concern. Study abroad experiences change lives and create new and unexpected horizons; this book shows how.” (Hilligje Van’t Land, Secretary General, International Association of Universities)
