Call for Applications: IIE-SRF Fellowships for Threatened Scholars Around the World

Deadline: Ongoing

The Institute of International Education Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) is inviting applications for its fellowship program for Threatened Scholars, the idea being the preservation of the lives, voices, and ideas of scholars around the globe. IIE-SRF fellowships support visiting appointments for threatened scholars to continue their work in safety at partnering academic institutions worldwide.

The IIE-SRF fellowship provides financial support, professional development assistance, and resources to help fellows transition (often with their families) to their host institution environments. IIE-SRF works with fellows to identify suitable host institutions in safe locations, emphasizing, when possible, that they join institutions in their home regions either in the immediate or long-term. The IIE-SRF fellowship term typically ranges from 9 to 12 months.

Benefits

The IIE-SRF fellowship award includes a grant of up to US$25,000, along with individual health insurance, to support a visiting academic appointment of up to one year (renewable for a second year).

Eligibility Criteria

Professors, senior researchers, and public intellectuals from any country, academic field, or discipline may qualify. Applications are reviewed for academic qualifications, the quality/potential of the applicant’s work, and the severity of the threats that the applicant faces. Preference is given to scholars who:

  • are facing or have recently fled from immediate, severe, and targeted threats to their lives and/or careers in their home countries or countries of residence;
  • hold a Ph.D. or highest degree in their field and/or who have extensive teaching or research experience at a university, college, or other institution of higher learning;
  • demonstrate superior academic accomplishment and promise;
  • will benefit their home and/or host academic communities.
  • Applications from women and members of ethnic, racial, cultural, or religious minority groups, or those otherwise underrepresented in their fields are encouraged.

Note: IIE-SRF does not grant fellowships to students seeking to continue their studies, including Ph.D. study, or to complete an academic training program. In addition, IIE-SRF typically does not consider applications from individuals who have been displaced or in exile for more than two years, or who hold citizenship or other permanent status in a second country.

How to Apply

Applicants must submit all the required application documents  via email (preferred) or post.
