The Jusoor Hardship fund aims to retain students in higher education in order to invest in the future of Syria and the region. This program is open to Syrian university students at the undergraduate and master’s levels who are enrolled at academic institutions outside Syria and are at risk of dropping out due to financial need.
The program provides one-time financial assistance of up to $5,000, which the student can use towards university tuition and fees. The funds are awarded as a loan without interest, with an individual repayment plan developed for each student. Loans must be repaid in full no later than two years after graduation. Returned funds will support new students in the future.
The application for the 2017-2018 academic year is now closed. Please check this page and our Facebook page in early 2018 for updates on the next application cycle. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We have recognized the need to extend help to students who are already enrolled at university and facing financial difficulties. In 2012, we partnered with the Institute of International Education and the Syrian expatriate community to award 46 grants to help Syrian students at US universities. In 2016, we helped 52 students through a similar effort.
