HOPES provides funding for innovative short- term education projects implemented by local and regional educational institutions. The objective of the call for proposals is to increase the number of refugees of post – secondary age from Syria and young people from host communities enrolled in higher education programmes and training courses including innovative further education options and language courses.

It also seeks to enhance the education and training institutions’ capacity to deal with the specific situation of refugees and provide Syrians and vulnerable youth from the host communities, with opportunities to access further and higher education. It intends to promote refugee education through better access to online resources, innovative courses and educational support.
