Hello everyone. Many requests we’ve been receiving are related to education and scholarships, especially for those who have been displaced.
In the past few months, a lot of light has been shed on the refugee situation and many countries and leaders have paid attention to the importance of integrating youth into society through education.
A few universities have individually taken the decision to offer scholarship for refugees. We’re hoping many others will follow.
Meanwhile, I thought I would compile a list of the scholarships I have heard of in the news and have listed them according to location.
We will get this post translated to Arabic shortly to make it easier for Syrians to read.
Both ways, I firmly believe students should put the effort to read and understand the language of the country they wish to apply to. If you are unable to understand the language of a website or an application then you will surely face difficulties enrolling in a university program. In the meantime, you can always use Google translate to switch the page to Arabic or English.
Necessary piece of information
I have had many students ask me what ‘undergraduate’ and ‘graduate’ means. Simply put,
Undergraduate – Bachelors degree which is usually four years of study in university after completing highschool, or in Syria, ‘baccalaureate’.
Graduate – Is a Masters or PhD program which students can apply to once they have completed their ‘undergraduate’ or ‘bachelor’ degrees.
