Just 5% of refugees can access higher education, compared to 40% of global youth. Financial barriers are a large contributor to this, which is why scholarship schemes can be so important.

As students, you have the opportunity to take direct action to create scholarships for refugees at your own universities! We have already seen successful models in Canada, where students have taken the lead in developing and implementing their own scholarship schemes. Now, we want to create the opportunity for students at UK universities to do the same!

Join us for a panel and workshop on how you can get started on implementing a scholarship for refugee students at your own university. The event will include speakers from the UN Refugee Agency and ISOW - a Canadian student group currently running their own scholarship scheme.
