Description

Since 2002, The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund has assisted 544 scholars from 50 countries, placing them at more than 300 host partner institutions in 40 countries around the world. The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund fellowships support visiting appointments for threatened scholars to continue their work in safety at partnering academic institutions worldwide.

Candidates may apply directly or be nominated by a third-party. Scholar Rescue Fund will work to identify a suitable host partner for successful candidates who apply without a prearranged host institution. Applications are reviewed for academic qualifications, the quality/potential of the candidate’s work, and the urgency of the threat.

Preference is given to scholars who face immediate, severe and targeted threats to their lives and/or careers in their home countries or countries of residence, or who have recently fled from such conditions.

Applications from female scholars and scholars who are members of ethnic, racial, cultural or religious minority groups, or those otherwise underrepresented in their field, are encouraged.
