  • Description

The Rockefeller Foundation (RF) Fellowship Program is a relevant phenomenon through which the role of this philanthropic institution in the structuring of the Chilean academic-scientific field can be scrutinized. The analysis of this academic mobility program presents an insight into the academic dependence in the relationships between donors and recipients. In the "Research Program on Academic Dependence in Latin America" (PIDAAL), we define dependence as a complex and dynamic process generated by the dominant academic centers, but critically received by the peripheral academies.
