INTERNATIONALIZING THE CAMPUS HOST A THREATENED SCHOLAR ON YOUR CAMPUS Every day, scholars in some part of the world face censorship, harassment, arrest, or violence at the hands of their governments or militant members of their societies who see scholarly efforts to promote critical thinking, dialogue and wider understanding as a threat to their authority and control. Working with colleges, universities, and other research institutions, the Institute of International Education’s (IIE) Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF) assists scholars facing threats or danger in their home countries by providing them with temporary academic positions and a safe environment in which to live and work. Interested in hosting an SRF scholar on your campus? SRF asks that the host institution play an integral role in the fellowships and requests the following: • Matching financial support from the host or other sources, generally a stipend or salary for the visiting scholar. In-kind contributions may also be included in a support package and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. • University/college visa sponsorship. • Faculty mentoring and staff assistance. Contact SRF to receive a list of scholars seeking placement. SRF will provide a list of scholar-grantees who are currently seeking placement. Upon request, we will forward additional information such as the CV, reference letters, publications, and teaching experience. Nominate a scholar who needs support. SRF accepts nominations directly from candidates and from third party nominators.
