For Syrian Students

If you are interested in applying for one of the 2016/2017 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 fall 2016 and others that may be available for spring 2017. 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.

The IIE Emergency Student Fund (ESF) periodically offers grants to Syrian students on U.S. campuses. These grants help students to address their urgent financial needs and stay enrolled in their U.S. degree programs.

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 50 higher education institutions around the world that have committed support for Syrian students and scholars, primarily in the form of full and partial scholarships.
