There are a number of ways that universities and partners can assist Cara in its work.
The support of the Cara Scholars at Risk UK Universities Network, now comprising 117 institutions, is central to the effective delivery of Cara’s work. Much has been achieved; but the need is growing all the time, so Cara is keen to develop further partnerships with universities and research institutes, trusts and foundations, learned societies and like-minded organisations, who want to take part in this life-changing work by hosting a Cara Fellow. Many UK universities also contribute, through a voluntary annual subscription, to Cara’s running costs; Cara gratefully acknowledges this vital support, without which it could not operate.
Cara is also very interested in building partnerships with universities and similar institutions outside the UK, who might be able to host an academic at risk. Cara already has active partnerships with universities in France, Germany, Canada and Australia. Any university in any country that wants to support Cara’s work by hosting an academic, with a fee waiver and, if possible, support for living costs, is invited to contact Cara’s Executive Director, Stephen Wordsworth.
