How the Scholar Rescue Fund Works

Fellowships support visiting academic positions for up to one calendar year. Awards are issued for up to US $25,000, plus individual health insurance coverage.

Fellowships are disbursed through dedicated host academic institutions, which provide direct support and a safe haven for SRF scholar-grantees. In most cases, host campuses are asked to match the SRF fellowship award by providing partial salary/stipend support and/or housing, material support for researching/publications, and other in-kind assistance.

For a decision by the end of November, please submit application materials by October 21, 2011.

Applications are accepted at any time and can be considered on an emergency basis.
