HOPES provides several hundred full academic scholarships through the HOPES Scholarship Fund to candidates at the Bachelor and Masters levels. The objective is to enable refugees of post-secondary age from Syria and young people in the host communities in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey to continue their higher and further education in local institutions.
The HOPES scholarship covers up to two years of post-graduate education. It is designed for refugees from Syria and vulnerable youth in the host countries aged under 32. A HOPES scholarship is granted to candidates who fulfill the eligibility criteria and are selected by the scholarship committees in each country. The HOPES scholarship covers the annual registration and tuition fees of the local institution as well as a living allowance covering basic expenses, such as food and local travel during the semester. Extension to the second year is subject to the demonstration of satisfactory performance during the first year of the enrolled study program.
The HOPES Scholarship program is implemented in partnership with the DAFI-UNHCR program. For the academic year 2016/2017, HOPES has already awarded 201 scholarships for Syrian students and young vulnerable youth in host communities for studies at different universities in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.
