The Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) programme offers scholars threatened or persecuted in their home country the chance to continue their work in a safe environment. The programme is established by the U.S. Institute of International Education (IIE) and Finnish National Agency for Education co-funds the programme in Finland and coordinates the cooperation with the Finnish higher education institutions.
