IPC-DSA Scholarship Program for Young Filipino Social Science Professionals
The Institute of Philippine Culture - Department of Sociology and Anthropology Scholarship Program for Young Filipino Social Science Professionals (IPC-DSA Scholarship Program), with funds from the Ford Foundation, offers support for academic and professional training in the graduate programs of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology of the Ateneo de Manila University. It aims to develop young Filipino social science professionals (preferably under 30 years of age) with the expertise to respond, with a sense of urgency, to the rapidly changing social and cultural landscapes that constitute the world in which we live. Recipients of the scholarship will be enrolled in one of the academic programs of the DSA (MA Anthropology, MA Sociology, or MS Social Development), with the requirement that they engage in full-time studies in order to complete their graduate program within a two-year period. Moreover, the scholars will be exposed to the research programs of the IPC. This combination of academic and research training is designed to equip the scholars with the methodological, analytical, and theoretical tools to generate and mobilize knowledge in shaping transformations in their localities.
The IPC-DSA Scholarship Program originates from and continues the goals of the IPC-DSA Professional Social Science Training Program (1986-2008) which, with funds from the Ford Foundation, supported the training of hundreds of social science professionals from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
