Fellows are accomplished scholars who having faced threats to their lives and careers in their home countries, have been awarded one- to two-year fellowships worldwide to resume their research and teaching. Advisorships are among the most effective ways for displaced fellows to work through challenges to securing longer-term positions and opportunities in academia and related sectors. Possible advisor roles include CV/resume assistance, cover letter preparation, career advice, etc. For additional information, please visit the IIE-SRF PSA program page or contact Olga Gregorian at email@example.com.
