UK: Syrians face uncertainty as funding dries up

Syrian students at UK universities say they are facing an “impossible situation” as funding for their studies dries up and some institutions are unable to cover the shortfall. Many fear that they will be unable to complete their studies and even sent home, where they could face torture or assassination.

IIE collaborates to mobilise US$5m for Syrians

The Institute of International Education has collaborated with the Illinois Institute of Technology and newly founded non-profit organisation Jusoor to raise funds for Syrian higher education students and scholars affected by the ongoing conflict in their home country. The funding will be channelled into funds that help both Syrian students abroad, and scholars at risk in Syria.
