Announcing the release of To Rescue Scholars is to Rescue the Future: An Impact Study of the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund (2002-2020)

In 2002, IIE’s trustees launched the Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) as the only global program that arranges and funds academic fellowships for threatened and displaced scholars around the world. IIE-SRF was created not only to save scholars’ lives but also to ensure the protection and proliferation of their ideas and work. Nearly twenty years later, we are delighted to announce the release of a new study – made possible through the generous support of IIE Chairman Emeritus and IIE-SRF co-founder Dr. Henry Kaufman – that documents the impacts and achievements of IIE-SRF's alumni on their home countries, host communities, and academic disciplines.
