The first International Fellowships Program awards to Mozambican citizens were allocated in 2002. In the course of the program, 8 cohorts were set up for 119 eventual beneficiaries of the program. The program in South Africa and Mozambique was coordinated by the IFP Partner, Africa-America Institute in South Africa. 16 IFP Fellows from Mozambique studied in the country; 101 Fellows studied abroad. On December 12, 2009, the International Fellowships Program Association of Mozambique (IFP ALUMNI) was founded. The objective of the Association is to seek the academic, professional, social and general welfare of all members, as well as to support community development in Mozambique.

The IFP office in Mozambique was closed in December 2012, with 25 linear feet of paper materials arriving to the archives in December 2012, and 3.13 GB of digital materials arriving in January 2013. The materials include administrative program files, fellow files and audiovisual materials. Mozambique program had no separate website, and the online activities of its Alumni group can be found on the corresponding page of the IFP legacy website. 93 Fellows gave their consent to granting researchers access to their files. The documents are in English and Portuguese.
