IIE-SRF is the only global program that arranges, funds, and supports fellowships for threatened and displaced scholars at partnering higher education institutions worldwide.

Since 2002, IIE-SRF has provided life-saving support to 974 scholars from 60 countries in partnership with 442 host institutions in 51 countries around the world.

In addition to assisting individual scholars, IIE-SRF has implemented special initiatives to respond to large-scale crises affecting national academies. For example, in 2007, IIE-SRF launched the Iraq Scholar Rescue Project, which supported more than 300 of Iraq’s most senior and threatened academics to continue their work, primarily in the Middle East and North Africa.

Since the 2011 outbreak of conflict in Syria, the program has awarded fellowships to over 100 Syrian scholars. For our work, the program was awarded the Middle East Studies Association (MESA)’s 2013 Academic Freedom Award.

Scholars can apply by sending the required application materials to us directly at [email protected]. In cases where a scholar is unable to submit the application, a third party may send the materials on their behalf.
