Rajendran T. Govender of the Kwazulu-Natal Department of Arts and Culture, South Africa, and Nagah Sayed-Ahmed, an independent social science researcher and activist from Egypt, consult the paper records of the Ford IFP Archive in the reading room at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library.In conjunction with the IFP Alumni Tracking Study, the Ford IFP Archive forms part of a comprehensive IFP Knowledge Management Project designed to document the history of the IFP fellowship and its future impacts. Housed at the Columbia University Libraries, the IFP Archive includes a wealth of paper, digital, and audiovisual materials which document the planning and administration of the program, as well as the selection, placement, and monitoring of its more than 4,300 Fellows.

A selection of digital records—including publications, the IFP media library, and archived websites—are available online via the Ford IFP Archive website. Paper records as well as other electronic administrative files and correspondence are accessible on site in the reading room of Columbia University’s Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Materials that contain personal and other sensitive information are restricted until 2075.
