How The Scholar Rescue Fund Works:
Fellowships support visiting academic positions ranging from three months to one calendar year with the possibility of a second year renewal. Awards are issued for up to US $25,000, plus individual health insurance coverage.
Fellowships are disbursed through host academic institutions for direct support of scholar-grantees. In most cases, host campuses are asked to match the SRF fellowship award by providing partial salary/stipend support and/or housing, material support for researching/publications, and other in-kind assistance.
Applications are accepted at any time.
For a decision by early-April please apply by February 25, 2011.
