Jusoor has established a partnership with Coursera to offer Syrians fee-waived certified Coursera courses, through which learners will not only gain additional skills and knowledge but also gain certification that can be added to CVs and Linkedin.
Jusoor is accepting applications on a rolling basis. Review of applications happens on a monthly basis. Applicants will hear about their application by the 5th of every month.
Applicants should be a Syrian national or Syrian – Palestinian and be a student, currently doing an internship or unemployed or employed in a low-income job.
By filling in this application form.
You will be informed by the 5th of next month. Unfortunately, due to high demand, we only review applications on the 30th of every month.
No, this award is a waiver for the certificate fee. Hence, Jusoor will not reimburse you for any costs related to the project, travel or internet fees… etc.
This includes a waiver for your course material and certificate fees only.
No, Jusoor will not reimburse you for any certificates you purchased previously. However, you are welcome to apply for new certificates.
Unfortunately, if you don’t log in after 8 weeks, we will cancel your fee-waived online course. You will have to submit a new application when you decide to return.
You are allowed to pursue one course at a time. Students who wish to apply to more than one course must complete their course first. Once you verify the completion of your current course, please send your certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for a new course.
Feel free to unenroll from the current course. But you will have to apply for the fee waived online course again. We receive a lot of applications from students who would like to take more courses so we would like to ensure that all students are utilizing this opportunity properly. Please note that we offer a limited number of waivers every month and we would like to ensure that the most deserving have an opportunity to join.
Congratulations! Feel free to join your certificate on your social media as well as add it to your CV. Many students indicated better job opportunities after they have taken online courses. Moreover, you are now part of Jusoor Alumni so you will keep receiving more opportunities from us while they arise.
