Academic Mentorship Program

Jusoor offers academic advice through the Study Abroad Mentorship Program for students requiring help in their university application process and seeking more information on academic choices and studying abroad. The program is focused on connecting expatriate Syrians and volunteers with highly ambitious students in Syria and those recently displaced to provide coaching and mentoring throughout their academic life.

Mentees and Mentors are matched based on the country or region that the student is interested in applying to, the field of study the student is pursuing, or a specific university the student is looking to enroll in. They collaborate over the course of 6 – 8 weeks through Skype, Google Hangouts, Social Media, email, or any form of contact the pair agrees on.


Young Syrians seeking advice and counseling on their undergraduate or graduate university application are welcome to apply below as Mentees. Mentees, or students, will be assisted by their mentors on various topics including: advice on writing personal statements, recommendations and reference letters, field of study, admission, university life, living expenses and so forth.


Volunteers interested in contributing to our Mentorship Program and help young Syrians in their academic path by advising them and helping them in their university applications, can apply below as Mentors. Mentors support our program in assisting mentees/students in various ways, ranging from sharing personal experiences with university applications and finding suitable universities to assisting in filling out application forms.

The current application cycle is open from 1 May. – 30 June. 2017. We will get in touch with mentors who apply to join us and with mentee applicants shortly afterwards.
