Book Launch—International Scholarships in Higher Education: Pathways for Social Change
How International Scholarships Effect Social ChangeVoices
Scholarships for individuals to pursue international education can lead to more equitable, sustainable, inclusive, and prosperous communities. This is the central claim explored in the new book International Scholarships in Higher Education: Pathways to Social Change, edited by Joan Dassin, Robin Marsh, and Matt Mawer.
Drawing on research and critical analysis by nearly two dozen authors from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and Latin America, the book focuses on how scholarships respond to—if not influence—evolving trends in international education and global development with innovative program designs and evaluation methodologies.
Please join the Open Society Foundations for a discussion about the intersections of, and the emerging field of research into, international scholarships and social change.
