The Institute of International Education Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) is now accepting a new round of applications from scholars facing threats to their lives or careers. Fellowships support temporary academic positions at colleges, universities, and other research institutions anywhere in the world where scholars can continue their academic work in safety. Qualifying applicants are currently facing or have recently fled from direct and immediate threats. Preference is given to scholars with a Ph.D. or other terminal degree in their field, and who have extensive teaching or research experience at an institution of higher learning. Women and scholars from under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Students or professionals seeking funding to pursue academic studies or training are not eligible.

Please refer eligible candidates and forward this announcement to any academic colleagues who may be interested. Information on eligibility can be found here. For campuses interested in hosting an IIE-SRF scholar, please refer to the website. Please note that IIE-SRF fellowships are awarded quarterly. Applications are accepted at any time and can also be considered on an emergency basis.
