Emergency Refugee Assistance Scholarship Fund


We are happy to announce that we have a scholarship dedicated to refugees.

In light of the recent worldwide refugee crisis, UoPeople has allocated funding for 500 refugees (predominantly from Syria), a one-of-a-kind opportunity to qualified students who are interested in earning an accredited American degree.

Generously donated in-part by Fondation Hoffmann, this scholarship is available to all students around the world who identify as a refugee or asylum-seeker. Recipients of this scholarship will have up to ten Assessment Fees funded. Upon completion of the funds awarded, students may apply for another scholarship, and thus potentially cover the entire cost of a 2-year Associate or 4-year Bachelor’s degree.

You are welcome to read this article published about University of the People’s efforts to aid the Syrian refugee crisis.
