A legacy of rescue. A beacon of hope.
The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund® (IIE-SRF) is the only global program that arranges and funds fellowships for threatened and displaced scholars at partnering higher education institutions worldwide. At the heart of IIE-SRF is the idea that each scholar we support is a beacon of hope in our world.
Building upon IIE's century-long legacy of assisting students and scholars under threat, IIE-SRF has since 2002 supported over 820 scholars from 59 countries in partnership with 400 host institutions in 45 countries.
