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 3 months, mainly online, and work in small groups containing a mentor and up to 3 mentees.
Young Syrians seeking advice on their undergraduate or graduate university application are welcome to apply below as mentees. Advice will focus on writing personal statements, recommendations and reference letters, field of study, admission, university life, living expenses, and applying for scholarships, among other topics.
Volunteers interested in helping young Syrians on their academic path by advising 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 during the application process.
Applications for the Spring 2018 cycle (January 15 – June 15) are now closed. The Fall 2018 cycle will tentatively launch in August. Please check this page in July 2018 for further information.
Students seeking help with their university application process apply as mentees. Jusoor matches each mentee with a volunteer mentor who will guide him or her through the application process and answer questions they may have on various applications. Mentors lead up to three mentees throughout the mentorship period.
Public question and answer sessions are organized to allow mentors to share their experience with a wider audience. Upcoming sessions are announced on our Facebook Page and session-recordings are available on our website.
Jusoor encourages Syrian students and students-to-be to connect and share experiences about applying to universities and succeeding in their academic programs and growing careers. If you are interested in organizing an in-person event in your city contact us below.
