Assyrians Without Borders hereby announces scholarships for Assyrian students in Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran and Lebanon. The funds are intended for studies at university level. Certain priority will go to exchange studies. The funds aim studies during the period 2019-09-01 to 2020-01-31. Last day for submission is 25th of August 2019.
One of Assyrians Without Borders´ major goals is to help young Assyrians, so that themselves can improve their future and living conditions in their native country. This is done today in various ways, of which one of the most effective methods is to provide students with financial means for university studies. By doing this, Assyrians Without Borders shows current students that there is someone who can support them in their ambition to obtain a graduate degree, but also that one gives security to those Assyrians who express doubts to university studies in their fear to not be able to afford the studies.
We in the West, and particularly in Europe, are in many ways fortunate. For example, university studies are many times free of tuition fees. In this way you stimulate people to dare to invest in an education. An education that in many cases can lead to upward advancement for young people in the society, and then for example make a name for themselves in politics or business. In the Middle East, where the Assyrian ancestral homeland is, things are different. There tuition fees are expensive; many times students pay several thousand Euros. Assyrians Without Borders would therefore also give these students the opportunity to dare to take the step fully and invest in academic studies.
With this said, the opportunity to apply for Assyrians Without Borders scholarship opens once again.
The scholarship can for example be used in order to finance tuition fees, course literature, accommodation and also shorter stays (1-6 months) in a foreign university for learning new techniques and/or to establish co-operation. Funds are not paid for travel expenses.
All of the granted funds will be transferred to the scholarship holder when Assyrians Without Borders´ board has decided which students that will be granted a scholarship for the semester of fall 2019. After the semester is finished, the student needs to submit a financial report together with a copy of the final grades of the relevant semester.
Assyrians Without Borders reserves the right to withdraw the granted scholarship if either of the financial report or the copy of the final grades have not been submitted in time.
