International students are eligible for the IIE-SRF Fellowship 2022-2023, a fully-funded fellowship. Doctoral students are eligible for this award, which is open to all students. In order to support a one-year visiting academic post, the IIE-SRF Fellowship provides a grant of up to US$25,000 as well as private health insurance for each fellow.
The Baden-Württemberg Fund supports visiting research appointments in universities and other higher education institutions in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, where scholars can continue their work in the field of liberty and security. In order to be eligible, researchers must face or have recently escaped immediate and targeted threats to their life and/or career in their home countries or nations of permanent residency.
The IIE trustees committed themselves in 2002 to making rescue scholars a permanent component of the Institute's mission, and Dr. Henry Jarecki, Dr. Henry Kaufman, and Mr. Thomas Russo founded the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF). Since its inception in 1919, the IIE has prioritized the protection of endangered researchers and students. Throughout the history of the Bolshevik and Hungarian revolutions, the International Institute for the Exchange of Ideas (IIE) has demonstrated its commitment to defending the freedom of thought and knowledge.
