Launched in 2012 at the Clinton Global Initiative, the Institute of International Education (IIE) has established a consortium of colleges and universities in the United States and abroad providing scholarships for Syrian students whose education has been disrupted by the conflict.
Since then the Syria Consortium has provided more than $4.5 million in assistance to 333 Syrian students and supported more than 500 students.
Additionally to this scholarship program targeting Syrian students, Koç University has awarded full Scholarships to Syrian students in its graduate programs thanks to its existing graduate scholarship funding.
