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.

A Background

To enable researchers to continue their work in the areas of liberty and security, the Baden-Württemberg Fund sponsors visiting research posts at universities and other higher education institutions in the German state of Baden-Württemberg.  Teachers, senior scientists, and government intellectuals from any country, academic subject, or area who suffer urgent and specific 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.
