Candidates Seeking Assistance – Afghanistan

The below is a list of candidates from Afghanistan who have been reviewed by SAR and for whom we are now seeking expressions of interest from prospective hosts. While some candidates are outside Afghanistan (and are marked as such under “current location”) please note that the majority of candidates are currently in Afghanistan at this time (marked with an asterisk). Given the uncertainties regarding pathways out of the country, please know that arrivals of these in-country candidates may see extensive delays, and the SAR team will keep you updated as we receive information about visas and immigration options for those inside Afghanistan.

For any candidates you are interested in learning more about, please express interest following the instructions shared in the preceding email from SAR. Thank you for your institution’s interest in supporting scholars and others in Afghanistan at this time.
