About the program


The Scholars at Risk (SAR) initiative at Carleton is dedicated to helping scholars who are facing threats to their lives due to their scholarship. We work to protect scholars (and their ideas) and promote academic freedom by arranging one to two-year appointments in host departments across the university.

Since 2014, SAR Carleton has hosted 19 scholars, who have taught and researched in six different departments of the University.

Carleton SAR partners with the Scholars at Risk Network and the Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) to arrange these annual appointments. You can learn more about Carleton Students for Scholars at Risk on Facebook.
