The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) is taking applications from suitably qualified candidates for the IIE-SRF Fellowship Program in the United States in 2021.
The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) is the only international program that organizes and funds fellowship award programs for threatened and displaced academics at partnering higher academic institutions globally. These year-long fellowship programs support temporary academic roles at institutions of higher learning anywhere in the world where IIE-SRF fellows can keep doing their work in safety. In most cases, IIE-SRF fellows are qualified to put in for a second and final year of fellowship award support.
