Syrian Scholar Finds Refuge at Indiana University

An IIE Scholar Rescue Fund scholar from Syria who arrived to the United States just last month has found placement at Indiana University. 

Abdal-Razzaq Moaz, an expert on the history of Islamic art and architecture, and a former deputy minister within the Syrian government, has received a one-year appointment at Indiana University's School of Global and International Studies and will teach a class there in the fall.

Moaz is one of nearly 500 scholars who have been assisted by IIE’s Scholar Rescue Fund, which provides academic fellowships for established scholars whose lives and work are threatened in their home countries.
