Pursue your further education in a foreign country. There’s good news! A opportunity with the IIE-SRF Fellowship is presently open.
In this essay, we will go over the IIE-SRF Fellowship, its benefits, and the application process step by step. International students can apply for the IIE-SRF Fellowship 2022-2023, which is a fully funded scholarship. This scholarship is only available to doctoral studies pursuing research. The IIE-SRF Fellowship provides a stipend of up to US$25,000, as well as individual health insurance, to support a one-year visiting academic post.
The Baden-Württemberg Fund supports visiting research appointments in universities and other higher education institutions in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, so that researchers can continue working in the field of liberty and security. Teachers, prominent scientists, and government intellectuals from any country, academic field, or discipline who are facing — or have recently escaped — imminent and specific threats to their lives and/or careers in their home researchers or permanent resident countries are eligible.
Dr. Henry Jarecki, Dr. Henry Kaufman, and Mr. Thomas Russo established the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund in 2002 after the IIE trustees committed themselves to make rescue scholars a permanent component of the Institute’s mission (IIE-SRF). Since its founding in 1919, the International Institute for Environment and Development has prioritised the protection of vulnerable researchers and students. From the Bolshevik Revolution to the Hungarian Uprising, the IIE has demonstrated its commitment to defending the right to liberty of thought and information.
