A statement from the SSFF Board

16 Sep 2022 5:04 PM | Patricia Akhimie

The Society of Senior Ford Fellows (SSFF) has recently been made aware of the unfortunate decision by the Ford Foundation to end its long-standing support for the Ford Diversity Fellows Program administered through the National Academy of Sciences. While SSFF’s membership includes current and former Ford Fellows, and we seek to amplify and leverage the voice of Ford fellows for justice and equity, we are an independent, unaffiliated non-profit organization. We are saddened by the decision to end the Ford Diversity Fellows program, but remain committed to the fulfillment of SSFF’s mission. Inquiries regarding the Ford Diversity Fellows Program should be directed to the Ford Foundation at nasfordfellows@fordfoundation.org


The Society of Senior Ford Fellows is a nonprofit public benefit and charitable organization 501(c)3. EIN 85-1102780.
