The BEACON Newsletter

The BEACON is a newsletter of the Institute of International Education Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) which features news items about innovative program initiatives and the academic achievements of rescued scholars. The newsletter also includes messages from IIE-SRF allies on why they have committed their essential resources: time, expertise, wisdom, and funding to the mission of rescuing threatened scholars and national academies.
