The Philippine Social Science Council (PSSC), an associational membership organization established in 1968, served as the IFP Philippines International Partner. Philippines IFP office selected 222 Fellows for doctorate and master-level training. The program in Philippines likely never had an operational website, but had a page at the IFP legacy website. In 2008, the Fellows, who had returned to Philippines after completing their studies, founded the International Fellowships Program-Philippines Alumni Association (IFPPAA). The IFPPAA is committed to contributing the Ford Foundation's goal of social development and justice by conducting research and undertaking socially relevant academic projects.

The archived documents include administrative program files, fellow files, publicity materials and audiovisual materials. 203 Fellows consented to provide researchers with access to their files. The materials are in English and Tagalog.
