Resources From a Workshop on Delivering Higher Education to Syrian Refugees

In October, Al-Fanar Media organized a workshop for those trying to help Syrian youth get access to higher education in the countries near Syria. The workshop was hosted by Koç University and conducted in partnership with SPARK, a Dutch NGO that focuses on higher education and entrepreneurship with youth in conflict-affected societies, and the Scholar Rescue Fund at the Institute of International Education. Here we have tried to make materials from that workshop, including all presentations, publicly available to serve as a resource for those interested in this topic:
