Podcast - Brain Drain

( Click here to download the podcast )

Poor nations export citizens.  The more educated they are, the more likely they are to leave.  Nations suffer when it happens en masse.

Can it be stopped?  The Ford Foundation is trying. 10 years ago it launched the International Fellowships Program, a 350 million dollar effort to nurture talent in developing countries and keep it there.  In this
podcast, we hear from the program’s director, Joan Dassin.

Dassin runs one of the largest international scholarship programs in the world and after hearing her you’ll want to tell your friends all about it.
