Study overseas to further your education. Positive updates! The IIE-SRF Fellowship is open right now. This post will provide a detailed explanation of the IIE-SRF Fellowship, including its advantages and a step-by-step guide for applying.
For overseas students, the IIE-SRF Fellowship 2024–2025 is a fully financed opportunity. The purpose of this award is to support doctorate research. An individual health insurance policy and a stipend of up to US$25,000 are provided by the IIE-SRF Fellowship to support a visiting academic position for a maximum of one year.
In order to enable researchers to continue their work in the areas of liberty and security, the Baden-Württemberg Fund sponsors visiting research appointments at universities and other higher education institutions in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. Teachers, senior scientists, and government intellectuals from any country, academic discipline, or field who suffer urgent and targeted risks to their lives and/or careers in their home countries or countries of permanent residency are eligible to apply as researchers.
In 2002, Dr. Henry Jarecki, Dr. Henry Kaufman, and Mr. Thomas Russo founded the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) as a result of the IIE trustees’ commitment to permanently include rescue scholars in the Institute’s work. Since IIE was established in 1919, safeguarding researchers and students who are in danger has always been at the core of the organization’s goals. IIE has demonstrated its commitment to defending the freedom of thought and the pursuit of knowledge during historical movements such as the Bolshevik Revolution and the Hungarian Uprising.
