We are especially eager to identify candidates still facing threats in their home country/region, who may not be aware of the program. At the same time, we invite participation from universities and colleges that might be willing to host fellowship recipients. We are especially eager to identify universities and colleges outside of the US, especially French, Spanish and Russian language institutions.

Estamos interesados en identificar candidatos que se encuentren en riesgo actual en su país de origen y que no están enterados del programa. A la vez, invitamos la participación de las instituciones académicas dispuestas a recibir a los becarios de este programa.

Veuillez trouver ci-dessous une annonce concernant les bourses destinées aux professeurs, chercheurs et intellectuels indépendants dont la vie et le travail sont menacés. Les intellectuels de tous pays et do tous niveaux d’études peuvent être qualifiés. Nous vous invitons à nominer plusieurs candidats et à diffuser cette annonce à vos collèges susceptibles d’être intéressés. Nous souhaitons plus particulièrement identifier des candidats qui subissent toujours les menaces et qui ignorent l’existence de notre programme. Aussi, nous sollicitons la participation des établissements universitaires qui seraient disposés à accueillir les boursiers menacés, et en particulier les établissements en dehors des États Unis dont la langue d’enseignement est le français, l’espagnol ou le russe. Thanks for your help, Gracias por su ayuda, Merci pour votre aide, Rob Quinn Executive Director IIE Scholar Rescue Fund ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2005-2006 FELLOWSHIPS FOR THREATENED SCHOLARS ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Scholar Rescue Fund Fellowships The Institute of International Education's Scholar Rescue Fund provides fellowships for scholars whose lives and work are threatened in their home countries. These fellowships permit scholars to find temporary refuge at universities and colleges anywhere in the world, enabling them to pursue their academic work and to continue to share their knowledge with students, colleagues, and the community at large. When conditions improve, these scholars will return home to help rebuild universities and societies ravaged by fear, conflict and repression. How the Scholar Rescue Fund Works: * Academics, researchers and independent scholars from any country, field or discipline may qualify. Preference is given to scholars with a Ph.D. or other highest degree in their field; who have been employed in scholarly activities at a university, college or other institution of higher learning during the last four years (excluding displacement or prohibition); who demonstrate superior academic accomplishment or promise; and whose selection is likely to benefit the academic community in the home and/or host country or region. Applications from female scholars and under-represented groups are strongly encouraged. * Universities, colleges and research centers in any country may apply to serve as hosts. * Applications and nominations should be made to the Fund's Selection Committee. Institutions interested in hosting a particular scholar should submit a letter with the scholar's application. Fellowships are awarded to institutions for support of specific individuals, to be matched in most cases by the institution or third-party. Fellowship recipients are expected to continue their work in safety at the host institution-teaching, lecturing, conducting research, writing and publishing. Fellowships from 3 months to one calendar year will be considered with up to 25 fellowships awarded annually. The maximum award is US $20,000. * Applications are accepted at any time. Emergency applications receive urgent consideration. Non-emergency applications will be considered according to the following schedule: Fall 2005: Applications received by September 1; decision by November 1. Winter 2006: Applications received by January 1; decision by March 1. Spring 2006: Application received by April 1; decision by June 1.
