Program

Only three percent of refugees globally are in higher education. Only five percent of Syrian refugee children are in high school. With millions of gifted Syrians not able to attain a university degree or high school diploma, Jusoor’s Scholarship Program builds bridges between the potential of young Syrians and opportunities for further education.

Thanks to our Institutional Supporters

“Our journey was very similar to that of the Jusoor scholars. We see ourselves in them. Their success represents for us the hopes and aspirations of our people from Syria and the region as a whole. Like them, we endured war, displacement lack of travel documents and other travails. Their challenges and hardship were difficult to overcome, but hard work and support of good people and organizations have allowed them to succeed against all odds.”
