The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF), begun in 2002, provides persecuted scholars from around the world with one- to two-year fellowships that allow threatened scholars to pursue their academic and scientific studies in the safety of one of the Fund’s partner institutions.  This grant provides three years of continued support to the Scholar Rescue Fund for these activities.  Grant funds will provide life-saving fellowships for an estimated eight to ten persecuted scholars per year and help defray administrative costs associated with identifying, rescuing, and finding appropriate host institutions for endangered scholars world-wide.
