Our main idea is to create a network of academic and students in order to support Syrian students in their access to higher education and in their education process. To do so, we have firstly launched our pilot project, Academic Empowerment Scholarship AES.
Secondly, we are planning to create a mentoring program based on building a platform to network academics and students with Syrian students. This platform wants to be useful for Syrian students to support them during the pre-studies and studies phase:
- Pre-studies phase: searching for an education place, to apply to universities or to scholarships, giving advices and providing resources to improve the language skills, etc.
- Studies phase: getting familiar with the new educational system, sharing experiences, dealing with educational difficulties, supporting in linguistic difficulties during the studies, offering a support in research methodology and research areas exploration, etc.
