Abstract:It would be naive or chimerical, or both to assume that foundation officials do not allow their social and/or political and/or economic biases to influence the decision to concentrate on one area and ignore another or to fund one project and to reject another. The decisions to initiate work in specific geo-political regions, to consider funding various categories of activities, and to fund or reject specific requests are made on the basis of some criteria, some of which are public, some of which, perforce, remain unknown. In an attempt to grapple which only a few of these questions, the author examines the role of the Carnegie Corporation of New York in the evolution of education in former British Africa. Ref., notes.
