IFS from the Perspectives of Our Alumni (Former Grantees)

February’s blog post concluded by saying that IFS’s four founders made another prediction of sorts that remains true today: that a research grant, capacity-enhancement activities and support do indeed contribute significantly to the work of early career scientists and to positive impacts in their countries. In March’s post, we heard from among the 600+ current grantees about their perspectives on IFS. In April, selected members of IFS’s Scientific Advisory Committees (SACs) and external reviewers wrote about their views and their roles as volunteer advisors. This month we hear from 286 IFS alumni (former grantees) about their perspectives on IFS and the impact that the grant funding had on them and their careers. We began the survey questions by asking respondents to describe a defining moment in their experience of IFS that exemplifies its role in science.
