By Ismail El Makmak, from Syria living in Lebanon. Master’s in Clinical Psychology with the support of a HOPES scholarship funded by the EU through the ‘Madad Fund’ at the Lebanese University.
“The HOPES scholarship did not only give us hope, it also provided us with the time we needed. It offered us more motivation for progress and achievement, gave us comfort and the peace of our mind to not be preoccupied with our financial issues and basic needs and to focus on our studies.”
