Call for Scholarship Commitments

Building on the success of the IIE Syria Consortium in 2012, IIE is issuing a new call for universities to commit scholarships for Syrian students. Participating universities will be eligible for top-up grants and IIE will provide preliminary vetting of Syrian student applicants to help universities find the most appropriate candidates.

For Syrian Students

If you are interested in applying for one of the 2015 Syria Consortium scholarship opportunities, please visit the "Find Scholarships" website. Each university will run their own admissions process and will have a separate timeline. There are some opportunities that may be available for spring 2015 and others that may be available for fall 2015. Each university will have their own admission criteria (e.g., TOEFL, IELTS, SAT). To apply, you must follow the instructions posted on the online portal. Please make sure to check these scholarship listings carefully for requirements, and instructions on how to apply. In most cases, to apply you will be required to apply via the university's own application for international students.

We also encourage you to follow EducationUSA Syria on Facebook, as well as Jusoor and Global Platform for Syrian Students for scholarship updates.

For Syrian Scholars

IIE’s Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF) provides fellowships for established professors, researchers and public intellectuals whose lives or careers are threatened in their home countries. The fellowships support temporary academic positions at universities, colleges and research centers in safe locations anywhere in the world.

About Syria Scholarships

The crisis in Syria has created an academic emergency, with the break-down of higher education within the country and major obstacles facing Syrian students and scholars. In response, IIE is leading a consortium of more than 35 higher education institutions around the world that have committed support for Syrian students and scholars, primarily in the form of full and partial scholarships.
