Apply for The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund for Threatened Scholars 

Brief Description The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund® (IIE-SRF) is the only global program that arranges and funds fellowships for threatened and displaced scholars at partnering higher education institutions worldwide. At the heart of IIE-SRF is the idea that each scholar we support is a beacon of hope in our world. Building upon IIE's century-long legacy of assisting students and scholars under threat, IIE-SRF has since 2002 supported 857 scholars from 60 countries in partnership with 417 host institutions in 46 countries. Eligibility IIE-SRF accepts applications from professors, researchers, and public intellectuals who face threats and cannot continue their work in their home countries. Scholars from any country and in any academic field or discipline may qualify. Applicants are assessed based on academic qualifications and experience, the quality and/or potential of their work, and the urgency of the threats that they face. Preference is given to scholars who: hold a Ph.D. or highest degree in their field and have significant teaching and/or research experience at a university, college, or other institution of higher learning; have an established record of published research; demonstrate superior academic accomplishment or promise; are facing or have recently fled from immediate, targeted threats to their lives and/or careers in their home countries or countries of residence; will benefit their home and/or host academic communities. We encourage applications from women and members of ethnic, racial, cultural, or religious minority groups, or those otherwise underrepresented in their fields. For.more information, click here
