IIE Syria Consortium for Higher Education in Crisis

The IIE Syria Consortium for Higher Education in Crisis is a network of colleges and universities providing scholarships for Syrian students whose education has been disrupted as a result of the war.

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