A Legacy of Rescue. A Beacon of Hope
The IIE-Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF) saves the lives, voices, and ideas of threatened scholars around the world by providing fellowships and safe academic environments. SRF achieves this by providing academic fellowships to professors, researchers, and public intellectuals who face threats in their home countries. These yearlong fellowships support visiting appointments at partnering higher education institutions anywhere in the world that allow the scholars to continue their work in safety. In most cases, IIE-SRF fellows are eligible to apply for a second year of fellowship support.
IIE-SRF formalizes an unwavering commitment that IIE has demonstrated for over 90 years to preserve the lives, voices, and ideas of scholars around the globe. At the heart of IIE-SRF is the idea that each scholar we help who continues his or her work is a beacon of hope in our world.
Applications are accepted at any time throughout the year. Award decisions are issued at least quarterly and can also be issued on an emergency basis.Apply
