    Fellowships for Threatened Scholars
    Applications due July 31, 2017 Apply Now

    The Institute of International Education Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) announces a July 31st deadline for its next 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 the scholars can continue their academic work in safety.

    IIE-SRF formalizes IIE’s unwavering commitment to preserve the lives, voices, and ideas of scholars around the globe. Since the program’s founding in 2002, it has awarded fellowships to more than 700 scholars from 56 countries, arranging visiting academic positions at 370 partner institutions in 43 countries.
    Who can apply:

    Professors, researchers, and public intellectuals from any country, field, or discipline may apply. Please refer eligible candidates and forward this announcement to any academic colleagues who may be interested.
    *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.

    Information on eligibility can be found here.

    Because of high demand for IIE-SRF assistance, the program is not able to grant fellowship support to all applicants who meet the minimum eligibility requirements.How IIE’s Scholar Rescue Fund works:

    IIE-SRF 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 and eligible relocation benefits.

    Fellowships are disbursed through partnering universities, colleges, or research institutes that provide a safe haven for IIE-SRF fellows to continue their academic work in safety. In most cases, hosting institutions match the IIE-SRF fellowship award by providing salary / stipend support, housing, and/or other assistance that would make the scholar’s appointment comparable to other visiting academic positions.

    For consideration in September 2017, application materials must be submitted by July 31, 2017.

    Please note that IIE-SRF fellowships are awarded quarterly. Applications are accepted at any time and can also be considered on an emergency basis
