About the program

Our Scholars at Risk initiative is dedicated to protecting 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 in partnership with the Scholars at Risk Network and the Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF).

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.
