Since the early 1950s a number of institutions in the socalled rich countries have been set up or adapted to offer programmes of training, sometimes combined with research, geared to the needs of people intending to work in Third World countries. Some of these institutions have tended to cater mainly or primarily to students coming to them from the Third World. Several of them have benefited by special scholarship provisions, provided by rich-country governments, foundations, international agencies and the like.
