IIE Scholar Rescue Fund
Today, the undeniable and alarming truth is that there are more threatened and displaced scholars than ever before. When repressive regimes or extremist groups aim to consolidate power and suppress any form of dissent, scholars are often the first to be targeted.
The IIE Scholar Rescue Fund helps scholars facing unimaginable threats to their lives and livelihoods escape danger, relocate to a safe country, and re-establish themselves as teachers, researchers, writers, and intellectuals. The program places individuals at host universities, and provides them with essential support before, during, and after their fellowship.
Help ensure knowledge is preserved, by protecting scholars’ lives, voices, and ideas.
