"Best Practices": Tactics To Increase Access to International Scholarship Programs by Women and Other Under-Represented Groups.
Institute of International Education, New York, NY.
The ideas in this booklet were collected by the Institute of International Education to promote greater participation by women from developing countries in international scholarship programs. Many of the points would be applicable to other underrepresented groups as well. A number of suggestions are made to increase recruitment of women to scholarship and grant programs. These include outreach efforts and carefully worded recruitment materials. Suggestions to help candidates in the selection process focus on written applications and in-person interviews. Also important to the participation of women in international scholarship programs are the terms and conditions of the award. Programs should be as flexible as possible within the limitations of award terms. Monitoring and evaluation are also essential to ensure that representation is documented for planning purposes. (SLD)
