“As a beneﬁciary of the Scholar Rescue Fund, I know ﬁrsthand
the profound impact this program has had on me personally,
but it is the broad reach that makes this program so vital to
human rights and academic freedom for all scholars.”
—Scholar Rescue Fund scholar, Africa
“The Scholar Rescue Fund team gave me a lot of their time, backed me, and offered their unlimited support.
Their aim was to help the unlucky academic people, hold their hands so that they could stand on their feet,
recover, and be able to face life again with passion and conﬁdence. I am indebted to them all.”
—Scholar Rescue Fund scholar, Middle East
