Eight Tips and Things to Consider
A limited number of U.S. colleges and universities offer scholarships specifically for refugee or displaced students. You can find many of these scholarships listed on UNHCR or IIE’s websites. These scholarships create opportunities for refugee students to access U.S. higher education and a way for colleges and universities to welcome and bring the incredible talents of refugee students to their campus. While refugee students follow similar guidelines and pathways as international students, there are some unique considerations for colleges and universities when developing or offering scholarships for refugees overseas.
