Afghanistan Scholars at Risk Postdoctoral Fellowship Fund

The UC San Diego International Institute, in partnership with the Afghan Student Association, has created the Afghanistan Scholars at Risk Postdoctoral Fellowship Fund on behalf of our campus to respond to the urgent need to help at-risk academics directly impacted by the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan.

UPDATE: Thank you to all who have donated! We have raised enough funds to support one scholar for a year, and we are currently working on the sponsorship. Please continue to share the fundraising link.
