IIE Scholar Rescue Fund Report: The Rescue of Science and Learning - (Page 4)

History of Rescue From the 1920s to the Present The Scholar Rescue Fund forms part of the Institute of International Education’s longstanding legacy of responding when academics and students are threatened in the face of crisis. For over 90 years – from the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise of Nazi Germany to the Hungarian Uprising and apartheid in South Africa – IIE has brought threatened students and scholars out of danger and to safety around the world. Beginning in the 1920s, as Stalinism gripped the Soviet states, the Russian Student Fund helped more than 600 students and scholars find welcoming universities in Europe and the United States. In the 1930s, IIE was instrumental in founding the Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced Foreign Scholars, which rescued more than 330 scholars from persecution in Europe. After periods of assistance to Hungarian, Asian, and South African students and scholars, IIE helped thousands devastated by the Third Balkan War in the 1990s. With the establishment of the Scholar Rescue Fund in 2002, IIE formalized this vital work of protecting scholars and scholarship. In the past 10 years, more than 450 scholars have found protection at nearly 300 host partner institutions around the world. “We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason if we dig deep in our history and doctrine and remember that we are not descended from fearful men, not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes which were for the moment unpopular…” – Edward R. Murrow, Renowned American Journalist and IIE Assistant Director from 1932-1935 Photo top: Edward R.
