      new fellowships for threatened scholars. Scholars
      from any country and any field may qualify. We
      invite you to nominate suitable candidates, and
      ask for your help in forwarding the announcement

      country/region, who may not be aware of the

      At the same time, we invite participation from
      universities and colleges that might be willing to

      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

      * 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.
